linguaphilion lɪŋ gwə ˈfiːl jɔn/
noun | a compendium of resources on language and other miscellany
Etymology: c. 2010 from L. lingua "language, tongue" + Gk. philia "affection," from philos "loving." The ending is obscure, but is thought to have developed as an allusion to the Gk. neuter ending -on in words such as lexicon, phenomenon, and marathon, however there are others who see it as a descendent of the -on of cotton, which came by way of O.Fr. from Arabic qutn.
