The OED's Word of the Year

Remember, we have the OED online, accessible through both the Encore and ODYsseus versions of our catalog.  Some years back, the lexicographers who produce the OED announcement that the institution would evolve only online (where you would find new definitions of "toxic.")  For those who still want to feel the heft of a dictionary we still have the twenty-volume print edition in the ODY Reference area, it is English as English was in 1989, and you may be interested to learn that we have no fewer than eleven titles about the OED (including The Ring of Words: Tolkien and the Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press, 2006).
