I'm Jane Solomon, a lexicographer based in Oakland, CA. 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've also recently joined the Unicode Emoji Subcommittee, the group that votes on what new emoji pop up on our devices. My interests include researching emerging slang, crocheting/knitting, and drinking lukewarm tea.
