Lexicographers spend most of their time in research. They have to decide which words to include in a dictionary and what they mean. That decision is based on how often a word is used and how it is used. Lexicographers read newspapers, books, magazines, electronic publications, and a variety of other published materials, looking for new words, new meanings of existing words, spelling variations, and anything else that might help them decide whether a word belongs in a dictionary.
