Hello! My name's Jenna, I'm currently studying linguistics at UCLA, and I'm very, very excited to be making my major-outlet crossword debut! This puzzle has existed in one form or another for over a year, slowly progressing towards the grid you see now as I changed theme entries and reworked portions of the grid for cleaner fill. Major thanks to Erik Agard, Amy Reynaldo, and Patti Varol for providing invaluable feedback on the puzzle in its early stages, and to David Steinberg for accepting it for publication here. As for any comments on the theme, well, they say to write what you know.
