I am a logophile and a lenguaphile, but for the sake of simplicity, I've made my own portmanteau of the words -- loenguaphile. I'm also a bit of a xenophile when it comes to Japan. Well, Asia in general. I love syntax, semantic drifts, etymology (unless it has to do with slang), learning about different writings sytems, and basically anything language related... unless it has to do with language acqusition or neuroscience. If you would like, you can share with me your favorite words. I would be greatly interested in hearing them, although replying back won't be possible for awhile. My internet doesn't really work.
