1,840 New Words in the OED, and you can see them here for free

The Oxford English Dictionary, the definitive dictionary of the English language, has just been updated with 1,840 new words, including expanded entries for “brain,” (they’ve added subentries for :brain gain,” “brain weight,” “brain gym,” “brain fog,” “brain machine,” and “brain sucker,” this last being the first entry I’ll look up in the OED as soon as I’m done with this post), plus the phrases, “net neutrality,” “gender equality,” “auto-complete,” “brain candy,” and “environmentally unfriendly,” among others.

Oxford University Press has graciously given us a free trial to the OED, and it runs all the way through July 31, 2011, so you can feast on the new content for a good, long time.

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at claguard@fas.harvard.edu, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
