The Oxford English Dictionary is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of 600,000 words from across the English-speaking world. As a historical dictionary, the OED is very different from those of current English, in which the focus is on present-day meanings. You’ll still find these in the OED, but you’ll also find the history of individual words, and of the language—traced through 3,5 million quotations, from classic literature and specialist periodicals to films scripts and cookery books.
