Work Environment

Lexicographers work in office settings or at home. They spend most of their time reading books, magazines, and other materials and working on their computers. Lexicographers employed by dictionary publishers usually work a standard 40-hour week. Freelance lexicographers have more flexible hours. They might work 12 hours one day, and only four the next day. Lexicographers may have to work extra hours to complete projects on deadline.
