Having 'a love of words' is a term that people with 'a love of words' truly loathe. However, I really do have 'a love of words'.
So, imagine my joy to learn that one can actually adopt a word (for a year) and take ownership. Even better, you'll be helping the I CAN charity which exists to help children with communication difficulties. A massive win win.
Have a look at www.adoptaword.com for more details.
The initiative is a great idea and the adoption of a word makes an amazing Christmas gift.
Don't quote me on this, but (according to the Twitter feed) the 18th of December is the last day that adoption certificates can be sent out.
Keep your hands off the word 'diddle' though, I've got my eye on it.
