I went looking for other blogs that identify themselves as originating from Nebraska. Right away I found "Lisa's Blog". Her blog is nice looking and the content is interesting. Her vocabulary building entries caught my eye. This is something I do myself. With my old small-print OED, and a collection of specialized dictionaries, I try to add a word or two now and then.
I'm not obsessive or even regular about it. When a new word pops up in reading, conversation, or on the airwaves, I make an effort to look it up. And dictionaries, I can't get enough of them! I look for them at library sales. Not regular dictionaries, but things like medical dictionaries, legal dictionaries, and technical dictionaries are the ones I look for. Etiology and linguistic analysis are favorite pastimes for me. Syntax and usage are not far behind. Wish I had the time to make a blog with nifty daily features like Lisa's.
