Say It To Me
Hello all... I'm new here. Thanks for creating this community here as I was beginning to think I was "alone in the universe" with my romantic (in every sense) love of words, names, fonts, letters, and other language elements...|
My favorite thing ever is the word in my user picture, but I won't be creating an entry for her anytime soon as nothing I could ever say about her could really ever be good enough for her.
Anyway, the word I am posting about right now is 'Delineate'...
'Delineate' basically means to 'outline with accuracy'.
For the Dictionary.com definition, please click [Here], and to hear a Franklin bes-1840 English/Spanish dictionary saying this rather sexy word, please click [Here]. (Isn't her voice wonderful?)
I'm not good at explaining why I love words, but I do have very strong feelings for both 'Del' and 'Line', which goes a long way toward explaning why I like this word... I tend to be more into the appearance of words than their sound, but I do enjoy both, especially in this case...
P.S. Just as a suggestion, the words "linguaphilia", "logophilia", etc might be good to add to the 'interests' for this community... Those were some of the search terms I used to attempt to find places like this... And I'd like to give special thanks to the folks on 'grammargasm' for telling me about this place :-)
