9780198613473: Oxford Dictionary of English

The Oxford English Dictionary (OED), like its abridged version, the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, is written on historical principles and traces the development of each word's meaning and form from its first appearance in English. Oxford's other English dictionaries, following the style of the ground-breaking New Oxford Dictionary of English (1998), present words according to their use and frequency in modern English.

Review:

`Review from previous edition For once, the publicity is justified. This is an important book, with messages for all of us . . .. Cultural conservatives will find it very unsettling; the rest of us should wallow and cavort through its story.' Andrew Marr in The Observer, 16.08.98

`The [New Oxford Dictionary of English] has . . . outstanding features . . . such as the display of the usage information in an easy-to-read shaded box . . . and . . . loads of useful biographical information.' Wall Street Journal (Europe), 28.08.98

`The [New Oxford Dictionary of English] is a model of clarity - hardly surprising given its illustrious pedigree.' Time Out, 26.08.98

` unsettling; the rest of us should wallow and cavort through its story.' Andrew Marr in The Observer, 16.08.98

`unsettling; the rest of us should wallow and cavort through its story.' Andrew Marr in The Observer, 16.08.98
