Today is Valentine’s Day. When I think of romance, I think of literature. If the word for a book-lover is a bibliophile, what is the word for word-lover? Epeolatry means the worship of words, and that is pretty darn close. I do so love words. Tyler Morning Telegraph brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Is It Just Me? Great words keep life fun.”
I enjoy encountering new words in books and articles. After looking them up, I imagine places and scenarios where I will be able to put them to use. I don’t always remember them, but I figure I am at least adding some quality vocabulary to this 50+ year old brain. Anything to keep it sharp (or sharp-ish).
