AUTHENTIC | BRITSH | QUALITY
This year marks the 90th Birthday of the Oxford English Dictionary. English words have actually been collated for many years before, when on the 4th of April 1755 (some 173 years earlier) Samuel Johnson Jr, published, the first Dictionary of the English Language and is among the most influential dictionaries in the history of the English language.
But, as we’re never one to miss a party, and as the OED celebrates the release of the first ever Oxford addition, we though we’d celebrate with a few of our favourites.
