The Oxford English Dictionary has been relaunched with a new interface as well as new features such as:

  • Links to the online “Oxford Dictionary of National Biography” to see biographical entries for authors of the illustrative quotations used to illuminate the use of words
  • Links to the online “Historical Thesaurus to the OED” so you can follow semantic links through the dictionary for almost every word from Old English to the present day
  • Browse by categories (e.g. subject / region of origin) and timelines (showing when words entered the English Language) with the facility to refine your searches further

The dictionary is updated on a quarterly basis with the latest update in December 2010 revising and adding 2,400 entries including those for crickling, idget and “dictionary attack”!

Search the relaunched OED now!
