Word Nerd : Pluviophile

pluviophile word nerd via lawhimsyPluviophile is, admittedly, something of a made-up word since it has no official entry in any dictionary (The Urban Dictionary aside, since that can be a rather sketchy source.). The word pluviophile seems to be derived of the words pluvial (of or relating to rain) and phile (having a fondness for something).

Being a logophile I am all for a constantly changing, growing and adapting vocabulary and language, so a new word like pluviophile is quite the exciting discovery. It also happens that I am very fond of rain (as petrichor and mizzle show), so pluviophile fits perfectly into my personal lexicon!

The lovely Spring showers that have been coming on and off the past few days have only enhanced my adoration for this new-found term and I am a happy pluviophile, indeed!

Namaste ~ Ella
