What’s the word?

Where to turn when you want to know more about a word than a simple definition?  The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, pronunciation, and etymological history of approximately 600,000 words from across the English-speaking world.  Part of the richness of the OED is that it includes the history of individual words traced through millions of quotations.  Enrich your knowledge and your vocabulary.  You can find the OED on the Library’s list of databases:  https://my.bucknell.edu/script/libraryit/databases/Default.asp#O
