Welcome to the website woven for wordaholics, logolepts, and verbivores. Carnivores eat meat; herbivores eat plants and vegetables; verbivores devour words. If you are heels over head (as well as head over heels) in love with words, tarry here a while to graze or, perhaps, feast on the English language. Ours is the only language in which you drive in a parkway and park in a driveway and your nose can run and your feet can smell.


Many of us attend conferences, parties and other gatherings where we are asked to wear name tags that say, “Hello, I’m _____.” Here’s a punderful game that takes those badges to the limit. The object is to match a real first name with a real job to spark a punny connection, as in “My name is Cole, and I’m a miner.”
