I love this site. It’s sort of a social network for people who, like yourselves, love words. You log on, list your favorite words, and are linked to other people who like those words. Together, you can discuss your favorites in each word’s annotation section: etymologies, usage notes. It’s insanely geeky but awesome. My profile. A few words on my Favorites list: threnody, diaphanous, interrobang, synchronic, churl and pynchonian.


  1. Oh great, Stephenson. As if I needed another blasted way to waste time!
