Let’s play a game

Tonight we’re going to play a game!  (I’m tired; it’s the best I’ve got.)

Without looking at a dictionary, let’s come up with as many words as we can that start with F with at least 3 syllables.  I’ll get us started.

Facetious
Fatuous
Fantastic
Fabulous
Forthrightness
Fundamental
Futuristic
Fanatical
Flammable
Fortieth
Formulaic
Friendliness
Fluffiest
Filibuster
Filament

Okay, I did fifteen.  Now it’s your turn!  Add some more in the comments, and remember, it’s a vocabulary challenge.  No dictionaries!
