I’m the author of Because Internet: Understanding the New Rules of Language, a book about internet language with Riverhead (Penguin) coming out on July 23, 2019. See the Gretchen McCulloch author page on the Penguin Random House website and the book page for Because Internet, with more information and preorder links.

I’m the Resident Linguist at WIRED, where I write a column about internet language. (See all my columns at the Gretchen McCulloch author page at Wired.)

I was previously the Resident Linguist at The Toast: see all my articles on the Gretchen McCulloch author page at The Toast (note that if The Toast’s archive is down, you can also read my A Linguist Explains articles as pdfs here.)
