Happy Nerd Word Day!
Do you consider yourself a word nerd? A word nerd is similar to a logophile, or someone that loves words.
Word nerds love to read, have a dictionary, and even use a thesaurus. They probably enjoy etymology, which is the study of words and how their meanings have changed throughout history. Word Nerds are likely to play and enjoy word games. They often have a word of the day or word of the year. Word nerds are always correcting grammar or punctuation, whether it is a natural inclination of theirs, people come to them for writing help, or it is part of their job. Editors may be seen as professional word nerds. Anyone who works in a job involving communications, marketing, web production and the like work in word nerd fields as well.
National Word Nerd Day is observed annually on January 9th.
