  • Oxford English Dictionary
    The accepted authority on the evolution of the English language, the OED is a guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of over half a million words, both present and past. It traces the usage of words through quotations from a wide range of international English language sources, from classic literature and specialist periodicals to film scripts and cookery books.(Updated regularly)
