Wednesday's Word will be a weekly feature wherein I'll introduce a not-very-common and/or not-frequently used word.
We've all been reading and at one point or another come across a word and wondered, "what the heck does that mean?" I actually keep a notepad and pen handy while reading to jot down these words to look up at a later time.
I decided to post only one word per week. This will enable you to remember it and its meaning. Think of it during the day, try using it in a conversation. It's a great way to grow your vocabulary, and maybe next time you're reading, you just might come across one of the words I've featured, and won't have to look it up!
Today, to kick of Wednesday's Word, I'm beginning with: LOGOLEPSY.
Logolepsy is a noun, and its description is, "an obsession with words."
Good word to begin this feature with, don't you think? Now go out there and have some fun with this word! Let people know you have logolepsy! That should propagate some rather interesting conversations!
Whether you suffer from or endure this ailment, be sure to check in every Wednesday for a new word!
Note: The source for many of the words I'll be featuring can be found at Luciferous Logolepsy. They are so obscure, I was actually unable to find some of them at a couple of common online dictionary references, such as The Free Dictionary.com.
