Wordsmith: Dear Sexy G
Dear Sexy Grammarian-
I just learned from dictionary.com that wordsmith is a noun and not a verb. Is that right? I always thought it was both, like e-mail.
My Darling Esther,
I too think of wordsmith as a noun, a words expert. But sure, it’s acceptable (if modern) to turn it into a verb:
I’ve written a love letter, but I want to wordsmith it to make it sexier.
You could even make it an adjective by adding -like:
He wanted to seduce the librarian, so he used his most wordsmith-like vocabulary.
