Look, I just cannot help but build my own personal glossaries, lexicons, and word lists when I read books. What can I say? I love building my vocabulary, I enjoy researching and learning new things, and I love making lists! And after all that hard work, I’d be remiss if I didn’t share my results!

For me, it all began when I started reading The Shadow of the Torturer with my husband, and we realized we needed to start writing down and looking up the plethora of archaic words within! Since then, it’s been a fun project for me. Here are the words and terms I’ve collected thus far.
