OED News December Issue

The December issue of the Oxford English Dictionary-related newsletter is now online. Apart from articles by people involved in the the US$70 million revision programme, OED News also includes a list of Appeals for help with particular words: do you remember reading about a quad bike before 1989? Or eating a tikka masala before 1975? Often these are slang or colloquial items which cannot be researched in specialist texts and are most likely to be found by a general reader in non-specialized or popular literature. If you can help with any of the words listed, they'd love to hear from you. OED News is published quarterly, and contains articles by editors, researchers, and contributors on their work for the OED, and regular updates on the programme's progress.
