Word Ways: The Journal of Recreational Linguistics
For over forty years, Word Ways has explored the many facets of logology (an old word resurrected by the late Dmitri Borgmann to describe recreational linguistics). Dmitri wrote the classic book on this topic -- Language on Vacation (Scribner's, 1965), now out of print -- and was the first Word Ways editor in 1968.
Word Ways is published in an 80-page format four times a year (February, May, August, November).  The journal is currently edited by Jeremiah Farrell.
