This afternoon, instead of actually working, I read this review of Roy Blount Jr's Alphabet Juice in the New York Times.
I am a fan of Roy's from "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me" and I have to say, I found the review itself to be a most pleasurable read!
As I went to forward the article on to a couple of other word-loving friends I found myself struggling to come up with the word for "lover of words". Which lead me to this list for words of love and attraction
I therefore declare myself a dendrophilious philalethist and logophile!
Never to be confused with a neophile or cynophilist, although this picture does seem to contradict that last sentiment
