Word Nerdery



I hope to order one of these soon. Yes.  It is a shirt with the name of a font on it.  That’s right.  I am a bit of a word nerd.

Anyway, Addictionary.com has a fantastic section called There Should be a Word for That.  Here are a few of my “there should be a word for that”s.  More specifically, I think there should be a compound German word for the following:

  • The Sunday night, pre-Monday morning melancholy we all suffer.
  • When a cat whines for you to open a door and then lies in the middle – half in, half out of the doorway.
  • When you really like a song, but don’t pay attention to the lyrics, then one day you actually here the lyrics – and are invariably disappointed at how stupid they are.


If you’re a fan of Wordnerdery, enjoy some of these:

            overused words
Misused quotes
            quotes that don’t belong around the words

Rhyme zone
            word nerd? absurd!
