Of all the things in the world to collect, I choose to collect words.

This is an ever expanding list of words I come across in my day-to-day that I just like, whether I’m fascinated by the spelling, meaning, or how a word sounds. I update frequently, so if you’re into words, check back periodically and see what new and interesting words I’ve added.

For easy reference, each definition below links to a dictionary page at Vocabulary.com or Google Dictionary with an extended description and audio pronunciation, because pronunciation and correct spelling are equally important, right?
