Logophilia

I like words, really like them, especially the unusual ones that seldom find their way into conversation, but may be found on better writers’ pages everywhere. To me, nothing is more enjoyable than reading a novel and copying down the words I do not know, so I can look them up later. That is how I discovered raillery, soi-disant, and badinage.

Anywho, here is a little website, the author of which defines interesting words. I am not sure why this dictionary is damned.
