There is always something to celebrate when you are a logophile*.
“Word Nerds” should always feel aplomb* because while some find a particularly beautiful situation ineffable*, the logophile always finds a word that is apropos* for the situation. Whether it is the petrichor* or nikhedonia*, putting your finger on just the right word is truly elysian*.
When the world is all cattywampus*, and people feel bumfuzzled*, the logophile might come across as being a pauciloquent* when in actuality, she is looking for just the right word, which can leave her feeling wabbit*.
While some people value expensive jewelry or cars, the logophile sees them as a boondoggle*, as gubbins*, simply foppish*. The logophile has abibliophobia* because books are the source of word magic.
Sometimes logophiles will constellate* and may even engage in logomachy*, but their love of words is ethereal*. Whether they are sesquipedalian* or more laconic*, finding the perfect word is a eucatastrophe*.
