Linguaphile means one who loves languages and words. Linguaphile originates from the Latin lingua (tongue, language) and the Greek philos (loving).
Linguaphile is a fairly straightforward word and one that few fellow Word Nerds really need defined. I mean, those of us who actively enjoy discovering and using new words are linguaphiles and we know it! I decided upon linguaphile because I wanted to give a shout-out to my fellow word-lovers and to let you know that Word Nerd has been so spotty with posts these last few months due to several megrim causing technical difficulties. I have been doing my utmost to diligently rectify the situation and I am beyond grateful for your patience and understanding (though I wouldn’t blame anyone for feeling a bit disgruntled – I’ve been rather discombobulated over it all). Hopefully I didn’t set off abibliophobia in any one!
So many luscious words to add to my dulciloquence / the mere though makes me euphoric / ready to indulge my librocubicularist soul / the one that longs for vellichor and the scent of biblichor / so piquant /a heady treat…Ella
So to all my dear linguaphiles I express my heartfelt gratitude and delight in your visits ~ Here’s to many more to come!
Namaste ~ Ella
