Oxford Dictionary of English - 3rd edition just published

"Did you spend part of your staycation this year watching the World Cup and tweeting about the infuriating sound of the vuvuzela? A lot of people did. These words are now so familiar that it's easy to forget how recently they were coined - staycation is first recorded in 2005, while Twitter wasn't set up until 2006, yet has already spawned other new terms such as hashtag and tweetup. The new third edition of the Oxford Dictionary of English has just been published, and you can explore it on this site right now"
