Wordstock! Look up your favorite word in the OED

The Oxford English Dictionary is the accepted authority on the  evolution of the English language over the last millennium.  It is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history and pronunciation of over half a million words, both present and past. It traces the usage of words through 2.5 million quotations, from a wide range of international English language sources, from classic literature and specialist periodicals to film scripts and cookery books. Come see the OED in its 20 volume glory and look up your favorite word or discover the Library’s word of the week.  Right by the elevator.
