Who reads dictionaries?
Surprisingly, there are a number of people who do so. My wife is one as is Ammon Shea whose book, Reading the OED: one man, one year, 21,730 pages, I just finished. It is sort of a travelogue of Shea as he moves through the OED. In writing about his experience, you will learn all sorts of interesting tidbits about dictionaries and Shea himself. For each letter, he has selected words that he found interesting and (for most) provides his own definition. A fun read and only 223 pages.
One of my favorites: Pandiculation: the act of stretching and extending the limbs, in tiredness or waking.
So now I have a word to describe that which is very common for me. Now, what about the groans I make at the same time?
By the way, I bought an English-Tagalog dictionary to read through last week!
