Word of the day – ieithgi

Yesterday I discovered a Welsh term that describes me, and many of you, perfectly – ieithgi [‘ɪəiθgi] (lit. “language dog/hound”), which refers to someone who is very keen on languages, i.e. a linguaphile. There are also some cool Welsh language games on the BBC website under that name, which where I found it.

Are there equivalent words for ieithgi (pl. ieithgŵn) in other languages?
