A bit about this site: If you’re here you probably love to play with words, or love to play with people who play with words (more on that later). This site features etymology (origin and history of words and phrases), poetry (written by yours truly and found here and there), as well as whatever word or language-related topics I find interesting at the time (and I hope you do, too). I’ve also included add-ons you might find useful – events, publishers, websites, etc.
