Hello I'm Grace and I love words...
So do you, and that’s why you’re here. The Sesquipedalian is a place for word nerds of all kinds to learn about, discuss, and celebrate the English language! Here, you’ll find a blog tailored to the interests and inquiries of the modern logophile, tidbits about their backstories, and links and references to all the resources a speller needs to succeed. Whether you are a current speller, a veteran, a coach, or just an aficionado, this site has the latest and greatest in all things competitive orthography and more!
