Dear Linguists,

		* Happy 75th Birthday OED *

The Oxford English Dictionary is 75 this year, and to mark the
occasion and to show their support to LINGUIST List, those wonderful
people at OUP have generously donated a year's individual subscription
to OED Online as part of The LINGIST List Publisher Prize Draw.

So what better excuse is there to donate to LINGUIST! As a donor you
are automatically entered into the prize draw.

This is a truly magnificent prize, worth GBP 350 plus tax ($550).

The Oxford English Dictionary is the accepted authority on the
evolution of the English language over the last millennium. It is an
unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of over
half a million words, both present and past. It traces the usage of
words through 2.5 million quotations from a wide range of
international English language sources, from classic literature and
specialist periodicals to film scripts and cookery books. The OED
covers words from across the English-speaking world, from North
America to South Africa, from Australia and New Zealand to the
Caribbean. It also offers the best in etymological analysis and in
listing of variant spellings, and it shows pronunciation using the
International Phonetic Alphabet.
