Oxford Dictionaries have more than 250 language specialists researching the language as it changes and develops every day.
Their research delves into all types of language, from the language of blogs, emails, and social media to novels and specialist journals, and from Hansard to everyday newspapers and magazines. They use sophisticated language technologies combined with editorial expertise to analyse billions of words of text, track subtle meaning changes, and create a true picture of the changing language.
The dedicated dictionary offices throughout the world, from the UK and the US to South Africa, Australia, India, and Canada monitor the latest language trends in English and other languages worldwide, from the moment they appear. The service offers a range of other language dictionaries.
