lexicography.

\ lek-suh-KAH-gruh-fee \  , noun;
1.The writing or compiling of dictionaries; the editing or making of dictionaries.
2.The principles and practices applied to writing dictionaries.
Lexicographers must drink a lot of espresso.  I would love to meet one.  I almost wrote ‘marry one’, but I think that might get a little frustrating.  I’d write a cute little note to put on the coffee pot in the morning, and I’d come home from work and it’d have red ink on my mistake.  Not romantic at all.
