OED Update: June 2009
This month the Oxford English Dictionary released its quarterly update, covering the range from rean to recyclist. This material was originally published in 1904 under the editorship of William Craigie.
Along with the revised entries, several new words have been added. These include:
- bailout, n.2, the rescue of a financial institution
- car-booter, n., a British term for someone who attends car-boot (car trunk to us Yanks) sales
- rechallenge, n. and v., a return challenge, to challenge someone who has challenged you
- turducken, n., a culinary delight consisting of a boned chicken stuffed inside a boned duck, which in turn is stuffed inside a turkey.
