I’m the author of Because Internet: Understanding the New Rules of Language, a book about internet language with Riverhead (Penguin) coming out in July 2019. You can sign up for very occasional email updates about the book here or see the cover and preorder the book here.

I’m the Resident Linguist at WIRED, where I write a column about internet language.

I was previously the Resident Linguist at The Toast (note that if The Toast’s archive is down, you can read my A Linguist Explains articles as pdfs here.)
