Writing Prompt Wednesday #79

For this week’s writing prompt, I wanted to write about a new word I like and which applies to me. Recently I read an article in the local paper about lexophiles. I qualify as a lexophile. Do you? Don’t know what a lexophile is? Read on to find out what it is and if you are one too.

Okay I’ll satisfy your curiosity. A lexophile is someone who loves words, word puzzles, puns, jokes with words. There is even an annual contest for the best lexophile (both a person and a play on words). Here are some examples: –to write with a broken pencil is pointless; a thief who stole a calendar got twelve months; a will is a dead giveaway; a bicycle can’t stand alone; its just two tired. Some are pretty funny and creative, others might make you groan.

If you think of any more, share them with us!

Playing with words,

  1. “Show me a piano falling down a mine shaft and I’ll show you A-flat miner.” Hahahahahahahah…I love word play even when I’m not clever enough and have to look lexophiles up on Google. Thanks, Michelle, that was fun. 🙂
