I'm Jane Solomon, a lexicographer based in Oakland, California. I spend my days writing definitions and working on various projects for Dictionary.com. I'm a coauthor of "Among the New Words," a quarterly article in the journal American Speech. I'm on the Unicode Emoji Subcommittee, the group that decides what new emoji will pop up on our devices. My twin sister is also a lexicographer.

I'm currently writing a children's book called The Dictionary of Difficult Words, out spring 2019 with Frances Lincoln. If you'd like to be notified when the book comes out, sign up for my mailing list!
