Database of the Month for November – Oxford English Dictionary Online



The Oxford English Dictionary Online

Have you ever wanted to find out where a word came from, what its meaning is, and how to pronounce it…then the OED online is for you! This is a historical dictionary. So it not only provides you with the definition, but also quotations to better help you understand the meaning of a word in context. The OED is updated every three months with revisions and new words that have entered the English Language.
