Words you might enjoy(e) | Installment I

Language is a great thing. I enjoy hearing other languages and I wouldn't mind learning a few others (like French and Swedish). However, there are certain words in every language that are fun, special and unique. I would like to bring those words to the forefront every once in a while. This first installment celebrates the word persnickety.

Persnickety can be defined as being particular to detail, or being snobby. An alternate meaning can refer to a need for perfection. I must admit that I am often persnickety about type, grammar, spelling and layout. My persnicketiness is helpful for my profession though. Isn't that a relief?
