Today is National Dictionary Day so to celebrate we have pulled together the things you might find all too familiar if you're dating someone who's wonderous with words. 

If they don't know the meaning of a world they have to look it up

If they don't know the meaning of a world they have to look it up

You don't have a hope in hell of winning at Scrabble- That game was made for your lover- you can play- but you will never be the champion. In fact, their name is legendary in their family for the time they spelled 'nevertheless' across the top of the board. 

They often come out with a word you don't understand- And you have to ask them what it means because their entire sentence makes no sense to you thanks to that one word.

Sometimes when you don't know the meaning of a word they use- You just nod along like you do and hope they don't ask you about it.

They have a dictionary but they rarely have to use it- When they do, it's for something really obscure that they just have to know the meaning of because they hate being defeated.

They would kick ass at Countdown- They get the conundrum every time and watch the show religiously. Thankfully, they also like the 8 out of 10 Cats version too which you can kind of go along with becasue it's funny.

They are amazing at crosswords- They enjoy nothing more than sitting down to one in a paper or magazine- or even a whole book dedicated to them. It's baffling to you when you would rather do literally ANYTHING else.

They're good at writing but hopeless at maths- They can't be good at both but it always amazes you how they can come out with a mono-syllabic word but fail at simple additions.

People who misuse or spell words wrong irritate them (to put it mildly)- They are constantly moaning about people on Facebook who spell love with a 'u' and hate with an '8'... and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
