Most Romantic Word

This is a very timely post because we just celebrated Valentines day yesterday. According to the survey which was participated by over 320 linguists and was conducted by London-based Today Translations this is the result:

Most Romantic Words
AMOUR - a french for love is the most romantic word in the world

AMORE - an Italian for love is the second most romantic word in the world

BELLISSIMA - both Italian and Spanish which means very beautiful is the third most romantic word

TESORO - Italian and Spanish which means treasure is the fourth most romantic word.

World's Most Romantic Language:
1. Italian
2. French
3. Spanish
3. English
(Notice the two 3? It is because both Spanish and English tied for 3rd place)

LEAST romantic-sounding way to say, "I love you" in any language:
1. Japan "watakushi-wa anata-wo ai shimasu"
2. Welsh "rydw i'n dy garu di"
3. Klingon as spoken in Star Trek Universe "qaparha,"
