Lexophile (n): A lover of words, especially in word games, puzzles, anagrams, palindromes, etc.
Ever since I was young, I have been a voracious reader. My main form of catharsis over the years has been writing. Words, words, words. I can't get enough of them. I find more enjoyment in learning about etymology of words than I do learning about the life story of most people. I love archaic words, obscure words, and words that just sound nice as they roll off the tongue.
Do you have a favorite word or favorite catchphrase? Do you love to play Scrabble from dusk until dawn? Do Shakespearean insults bring you unfathomable ecstasy? Was your favorite birthday present an unabridged dictionary?
I want to see if anyone else has an interest in this particular facet of nerdiness. I feel like this sort of swap could go a lot of places. I don't think it would be at all limiting.
