Is the writing a dictionary a good job for Julian?

Elizabeth I decided to use the job of editing a science dictionary as Julian's occupation not only as a way of showing Julian's intellect at work but also to allow readers to experience the beauty and mystery of scientific language. I'd been doing research on science dictionaries in order to improve my own understanding of both terminology and concepts when I discovered there were so many metaphors matching the characters and their interactions. I couldn't help wanting to incorporate these into the book itself.
