Confession: I'm a "word nerd"
I think it's kind of a gift, though. I know words. I wouldn't say I have the largest vocabulary, but I know lots of words. Reading books has aided me in finding misspellings and beating my Hubby at Jumble and Scrabblegrams.
This is a new thing at our house. Hubby's trying to improve his memory, and you can do so by exercising the brain. Since we get the daily paper, there are the same puzzles in the "Coffee Break" sections. So he does the Sudoku, and together we do the word games.
I'm pretty good at the Jumble. The words just pop out at me. I can't explain it, and Hubby gets upset. He's pretty competitive. But he gets more upset when the Scrabble dictionary contains words that he deems "are not words". But it's something we do together and it's quite amusing.
If you're a word nerd too, another good game is "Text Twist". I could potentially play this for hours....
