A logophile is a lover of words. Every time I come across a new word, it’s almost like finding money; only it is wealth you can’t spend away. And no one can deny that a rich vocabulary leads to richer experiences.
“Word knowledge is among the most critical pieces of language development. Children who acquire a substantial vocabulary are often able to think more deeply, express themselves better, and learn new things more quickly.” -Susan Canizares, Ph.D. in language literacy development
