On my team, I'm known as the wordsmith, but the wordsmith has discovered surprisingly few descriptive terms for such a person.
It seems that cultures come up with many alternate words for the things they care about the most. Supposedly the Eskimos have dozens of words for snow.

Meredith once cautioned me to never use the word bullshit on my blog or in other writings. I agreed and have diligently restrained myself. It caused me to search for alternative words. I came up with over 65 well-known synonyms. I guess it's a sign that our culture surely does care a lot for its B.S., nonsense, baloney, balderdash, horse-hockey, claptrap, malarkey...etc.
But I digress.
One of my favorite marketing experts, Joe Polish, offered a synonym for "lifelong learners": Seeker.
Not bad. Here are some others I've collected and used from time to time...
