Logophiles or Lexophiles?

Which are you – a logophile or a lexophile?

Dictionaries define both as a lover or words as in word games and puzzles, palindromes, etc.

Check out this video from Youtube for some phrases that word lovers will enjoy.

Do you have any phrases that logophiles would love? Please share.

To write one of these it takes a knack.

A multiple of words I do not lack.

But I tried and tried, oh, my aching back.

I just couldn’t do it, so I hit the sack.
