Is there a 12-step program that can help me? I was looking for a word today. I couldn’t remember the exact word, but I remembered that it started with logo and it meant something about being focussed on words.
I thought I’d blogged about it. So I looked on my blog, but I was scanning. I couldn’t find it.
I looked through m-w.com for all words starting with logo…but I didn’t find it.
I googled “lover of words”. I found a logophile’s lament. I only read the first two paragraphs before I realized that I HAVE THIS affliction. I HAVE EXACTLY this affliction.
Hello. My name is Jennifer. I am a logophile.
PS: I found my word: Logomachist. It was buried in the entry about fornicating frogs.
Excellent – I will start coming to meetings, too.
*Gasp* So that’s what it’s called! And here I was thinking this affliction was nameless and that I was the only one who suffers from it.
