Details of this swap:

Lexophile (n):  A lover of words, especially in word games, puzzles, anagrams, palindromes, etc.

This swap is for those of us that LOVE words.  Whether your personal motto is I love big words and I cannot lie or Big or small, I love them all, this swap is for you.

Do you find enjoyment in learning about etymology of words?  Do you have a favorite word or catchphrase?  Do you love to play Scrabble from dusk until dawn?  Do Shakespearean insults bring you unfathomable ecstasy?

If there are an even number of participants, you will have one partner.  If there are an odd number of participants, I may place you in a group of three.  Remember to get tracking numbers if you are sending within the USA and to keep receipts if sending overseas.

This swap is very open-ended and open to any and all media.  It is going to be a 2 POINT swap, unless you and your partner(s) decide otherwise.  This may consist of two smalls or one medium item.

(A general guide)
By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse

I have only run across "clowder" once in my reading, in "Titus Groan" by my favorite wordsmith, Mervyn Peake; I almost thought he had invented it, along with "halma" of which I also only recently learned the meaning....  Cheesy
