My hobby: finding words that fit to arbitrary rules for no reason. Examples: words that contain all five major vowels (evacuation), long words that have only one vowel multiple times (stronghold), words in which the singular form ends in S (species). I like to do that in Portuguese and English... I don't know, it's just fun.
Sounds like you might enjoy Oulipo word/writing games. They are also called constraints. languageisavirus.c...

Wow that's interesting! Tanks for sharing. It looks like something for a professional more than for a hobbyist like me ;)
