If you look over in the sidebar, you’ll see I’ve added a feed to the Oxford English Dictionary’s Word of the Day.
If you click on the word, it will take you to that word’s entry on the OED site.
As many of you know, we have a school subscription to the OED. This is quite a big deal, as a personal subscription costs well over £200 a year. If you need to know the username and password, just ask, whether personally or by email.
Simply getting to know how the OED entries are structured (printable quick guide here) is useful for improving your knowledge of lexis (and phonology and grammar to some extent), so it’s worth having a good browse.
The Word of the Day link also gives you yet another good reason for checking back here regularly (as if you needed any more incentive!)
