Search the Oxford English Dictionary from here

I've added an OED search box at the bottom of the blog, with code that comes from the nice folk at OED Customer Service. Scroll down, type your word in, and find a definition from one of the most authoritative dictionaries available.

A word of warning - it will only work if you're in a library with a subscription. If you're in one of Bolton, Trafford or Wigan's libraries, you'll be fine; but not if you're at home or work.

Of course, you can still access the OED using your library card number via Signpost's list of online dictionaries, no matter where you (and your computer) are.
