I'm Jane Solomon, a lexicographer based in Oakland, California. I spend my days writing definitions and working on various projects for different dictionaries. I was at Dictionary.com for seven years, and I’ve also worked on projects for Oxford, Cambridge, HarperCollins, Scholastic, Thinkmap, and K Dictionaries. I'm on the Unicode Emoji Subcommittee, the group that decides what new emoji will pop up on our devices. I’m also the author of the children’s book The Dictionary of Difficult Words.
