Do you use Pinterest? Do you, like me, sometimes fall down a pin rabbit hole?

I did this recently with words, more specifically, delightful, rarely used words that made me smile, that I identified with even though in most cases I had no idea of the correct pronunciation (I shall asked a more learned friend next time I see her).

  1. Heliophilia is the only one of those which I could have hazarded a guess at. There really are some strange and wonderful words in the English language.

    1. You have to wonder at the need for such words, but I'm glad they exist, if only to make me smile :)

  3. Like Jo, Heliophilia is the only one that vaguely rang a bell. I'm definitely a librocubicularist who sometimes indulges in a spot of oniochalasia! I love the English language, even if I'm not a native speaker. In fact, I love it more than my own language! xxx

  4. I'm definitely a librocubicularist. I wonder what the word is for 'someone who reads in the bath' because I'm one of those too x
