Lexicology

LEXICOLOGY: THE STUDY OF THE FORMATION, MEANING, AND USE OF WORDS AND OF IDIOMATICCOMBINATIONS OF WORDS.

verbomania: Obsession with words.

logomania: Great enthusiasm for words.

I’m delighted by the appropriate thunder of the word “cacophony”, amused by the ironic spelling of the word “phonetic”, and tickled by how difficult it is to remember how to correctly spell “mnemonic.”
However you put it, I’m addicted to words.

My Dictionary.com app is pimped with all the extensions, and my Kindle dictionary smokes from time to time.

I look up words all the time, and I even look up words I think I know correctly – just to make sure.  I keep track of my favorites on my app, but I wanted to keep a log of words I look up. So, I’m finally doing it, and that is what you’ll find here… my addiction for all to see!
