About this book
Most people think of the "Oxford English Dictionary" as a distinctly British product. The linguist and lexicographer, Sarah Ogilvie, combines her insider knowledge and experience with impeccable research to show rather that it is an international product in both its content and its making. This will be the first book to challenge the received view on how editors of the past treated foreign words and World Englishes in the "OED".
Demonstrates that the Oxford English Dictionary is an international product in both its content and its making.
