What a Coincidence

What a coincidence that Sammi should set us this word for the prompt this week.

Why, only last week my brother said to me, “Crisp, you’re good with long words, aren’t you?”

“If you say,” I said. “I don’t think I am, but…”

“Yes you are,” he said. “So what’s the word for a person who collects words to compile a dictionary?”

“It’s lexicographer. Why?”

“Times crossword. I said it was a dictionarier, but the missus laughed at me.”

“It’s lexicographer. From lexicon,” I said.
