Using Text

I've seen a lot of icons that incorporate text.  However, I'm at a lose on how to go about using it.  It's not so much the technological stuff as much as the use of it.  Where do you get inspiration for the words you choose? How does font choice play in?  What are the big mistakes in using text?  Is there a big guide that I haven't been able to find?  Thanks!
