What Is Dialexical?

Dialexical is a blog about words. It is a platform for discussing language in the news, politics, media, and pop culture.

What Does the Name Mean?

This blog’s name is a mash-up of two words: dialectic and lexical. I chose the name because I love wordplay, and I’m hoping to use this blog to start a dialogue about words.

dialectic, noun

discussion and reasoning by dialogue as a method of intellectual investigation…an intellectual exchange of ideas”

lexicaladjective

“of or relating to words or the vocabulary of a language”

Who Are You?

I am a logophile. A reader. A descriptivist grammar nerd. A protolinguist. A pun enthusiast. And a Millennial with a yen for analyzing rhetoric.
