Hi, Elan. Yes, that is what I mean by mouthfeel with words, although sometimes it is literally how we have to move our lips, tongue or palate as the air moves through our mouths that gives me a pleasant tingle! But, yes, like you I also like it when words sound or feel very much what they mean, like pop or crack!
