A person who spends their life telling others what is or is not a word, based on what they have read in books.
First coined by Steven Colbert on the Colbert Report during a segment of The Word.
I know you Wordanistas love to say funner is not a word, but it is, i looked it up in my gut, and that's the Truth.

What is it with you Wordanistas telling me what is and what isnt a word. Who made Merriam Webster God?

"And that brings us to tonight's word: truthiness. Now I'm sure some of the Word Police, the wordanistas over at Webster's, are gonna say, 'Hey, that's not a word.'"
