Erica Hsiung Wojcik and Matthew Stock have today's puzzle together, which is a themeless at 5/5 difficulty. We wish you good fortune in solving it!
This is Matthew's second puzzle for the AVCX, after his debut themeless for us earlier this year. Erica is a psychology professor at Skidmore College who knows a ton about how babies learn language. She created and moderates the Expanded Crossword Names database and writes crosswords for the USA Today, as well as other outlets. She also contributed to Lollapuzzoola 2021's Mid-Day Multi Mini Meta Mayhem this past weekend.
