I am a word nerd. On that, everyone who knows me agrees.
I Like Words. I collect them. I treasure them. I value them. I archive them. Here’s a few which have come up recently in my spoken vernacular:
Do you hear them? Do you know what they mean? Do you say them? Or are they a ‘blast from the past’ – or from the future?
You may/may not have noticed this fact: the words are alphabetized.
I am dictionary/encyclopedia trained.
No Wikipedia for me!
Or Millennial-speak. I will not get turnt. I will not be star (though I am a star, I think)
Nowadays, I don’t know whether to be hot. Or cool. (I guess that’s star) Or politically-correct.
I will be a word nerd. So there!
I want/need to give you more words. Read on, compadre word lover!
(wink-wink My inner ‘beat’s overcome my affirmed alphabet habit)
Here’s an ending – to go for a win! https://www.merriam-webster.com
Now you may become a word nerd, too!
Come to the brighter side of life. Be a word lover who cherishes, uses, and prides one’s self with proper knowledge and use.
Join the legions, say the pledge, adore – and use words. Listen to hear the melody – or the chop.
Listen. Communicate. Learn. Preach!
