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!
