myron@tdstelme.net

My ultimate goal is to select, from the overall universe of positive English words, a short list of the best positive words (certainly a somewhat subjective task) that one can read and enjoy whenever you wish.
The fundamental selection criteria are that each chosen word must be–
 1. Fairly simple and common;
 2. Totally and unquestionably positive in virtually every context;
 3. One which you should always feel comfortable reading, using and sharing.
Hopefully this collection will also serve as a useful resource for those seeking positive enlightenment.

Additional comparatives and superlatives can be formed by preceding the appropriate adjective with 'more' or 'most' respectively:
more endearing, more lavish, more steadfast, most eloquest, most famous, most fetching, most joyful

Many positive adjectives can be transformed into adverbs by appending these same adjectives with 'ly':
admirably, adroitly, beautifully, calmly, cozily, lavishly, tranquilly, truly, wittily, etc.
Preceding positive adjectives with positive adverbs increases these same adjective's positiveness:
(astonishingly, delightfully, wonderfully) accomplished, (absolutely, incredibly, overwhelmingly, totally) brilliant, (constantly, especially, perfectly) happy

The following general adjectives and adverbs may amplify the positiveness of an accompanying noun:
all-time, always, astronomical, big, boundless, colossal, countless, endless, enduring, enormous, epic(al), eternal, everlasting, exhaustless, forever (alive, beautiful, brilliant, healthy, new, strong, young), giant, gigantic, giant-like, good-sized, immeasurable, immemorial, immense, incalculable, inexhaustible, infinite, innumerable, kingsize, large, limitless, mammoth, measureless, mighty, monumental, myriad, never-ending, numberless, perpetual, prodigious, profound, record-size, sizable, shoreless, timeless, titanic, towering, tremendous, unbounded, uncounted, unending, unlimited, unmeasured, unnumbered, untold, vast

Care must be taken with the following adjectives to assure that they are used in a positive context:
ablaze, absolute, afire, aflame, ambidextrous, aristocratic, artful, balmy, beguiling, bland, blazing, break, certified, clear-cut, close, collaborating, consummate, controlled, costly, cunning, delicate, discriminating, evangelical, evangelistic, everlasting, exacting, facile, fair-weather, floating, fresh, gay, glamorized, glittering, glossy, handmade, high, high-toned, homemade, hot, husky, imperial, intense, intoxicating, mild-mannered, moneyed, newsworthy, operating, outstanding, passionate, pat, phenomenal, plain, platinum-blond, plummy, politic, pregnant, preventative, preventive, proportioned, proud, rank, rare, rife, rigorous, robustious, scoop, self-asserting, sensational, serious, sharp, sheltered, simon-pure, simple, singing, singular, sky-high, smashing, smooth-spoken, soaring, soft, sophisticated, spare, sparing, spicy, square, stacked, striking, strong-willed, thin, total, touching, tough, tough-minded, turned-on, ultimate, voguish, wanted, well-(fed, forested, ventilated)

Preceding neutral nouns with positive adjectives often produces positive combinations: good (morning, afternoon, evening, day), great (artwork, expectations, outdoors), happy (anniversary, birthday, times), ideal (place, spot, town), perfect (hat, location, person, picnic)
Appending certain nouns and adjectives with 'free,' 'less,' or 'proof' transforms these nouns into positive adjectives: carefree, (cloud, debt, disease, duty, error, fat, frost, germ, guilt, ice, nuclear, sin, tax, toll, trouble, worry, wrinkle)-free; cloudless, guileless, sinless; goofproof
Additional positive adjectives can be created by prefacing regular adjectives with such prefixes as 'in' or 'un': incontestable, incorruptible, inerrant; unblemished, unbreakable, uncomplicated, undoubted, unerring, unrivaled, etc.
Interchanging an adjective and participle may transform a positive descriptor into a positive verb: good-looking, looking good; good feeling, feeling good
Many positive adjectives and nouns may also be transposed without altering their essential meaning: (flower, fruit) basket, basket of (flowers, fruit)
Certain positive words ending in 'ing' may be used as either an adjective or a verb: dazzling, flowering, invigorating, inviting, relaxing, revitalizing
Many positive comparisons (similes) employ 'as' or 'like': pretty as a (picture, flower); bright as (day, the sun, a star); fresh as (a daisy, the morning dew); busy as a (beaver, bee); clear as (a bell, glass); easy as pie, wise as an owl, white as snow, smooth as glass, sweet as honey, bright like the sun, etc.
