Many bibliophiles are also logophiles and we who love words play with them. Rhyming was once the most common form of word-play. Today, the crossword puzzle may be. The New Yorker style cartoon qualifies for there is play between the picture and the caption. Thomas Hood's illustration of a "Stitch in Time" is a type of word-play we might call "pictoral pun," sub-category "idiom." Groups already established at LT include the National Puzzlers' League, Cryptic Crosswords, Crambo, and Playing games and solving puzzles. Let us see if a broader umbrella encourages more participation. Some talks might be for doing it and others for gathering, categorizing, discussing and comparing varieties of word-play, not to mention mentioning books, magazines, blogs featuring it.
