According to WordWays logology is an old word resurrected by the late Dmitri Borgmann to describe recreational linguistics . That would make people like me (and quite likely others who read this blog) a logologist.
I don't subscribe to WordWays, so I can't give much of a reveiw of it, but David Weignburger has just blogged about it on his site Joho the Blog. It sounds like it contains some quite interesting stuff. The WordWays site also contains a bunch of articles from older issues that look like an interesting read.
