Pronounced: OH-vine, adj

Notes: Looks like “bovine” misspelled, but it isn’t

Yesterday’s word

The word logophile is “a lover of words”

First usage

Oddly enough, this word only seems to go back to the 1920s.

Background / Comments

I do love words (and learning), and that’s why I do this blog, even if it never has a large following. I do this for my enjoyment as much as anything else. The word comes from the Greek words logos (word; speech; saying) and philos (good friend). If I had slowed down a bit, I would have seen “logo” instead of “log” and probably had the definition correct.
