A person who becomes stimulated (mentally and otherwise) by language - word play, freudian slips, sarcasm, one liners, pickup lines, double entendres, interlingual references, trash talking, snaps, sexting, unusual names, quotations, new languages, grammar, etc. etc. Taken from the combination of "word" and "pervert". Probably bordering on mental illness but not disruptive to a "normal" existence (on the contrary, it may in fact enhance the person's daily social interactions dramatically).
From Oscar Wilde to textsfromlastnight.com, there are too many examples of wordvert to give in one little box - go read/watch/listen/talk!
