Oxford English Dictionary - OED

This group is for those interested in the OED. That is, the Oxford English Dictionary.

Whether you want to read it, own it, discuss it or argue about it this is the place for you.

You don't need to own the 20 Volume Edition or aspire to purchase it either. You may be a fan of the concise, compact, mini or shorter editions. Or you may be interested in other dictionaries and comparing like for like. Some may well be interested in the history of the OED and the story and characters behind it. It matters not a jot, what reason you are here for!
