OED Update, September 2009

It’s September and time for the quarterly update of the Oxford English Dictionary.

This quarter, the big dictionary has focused on ten key words and the various words and phrases that are built upon them:

  • clone
  • drug
  • face
  • global
  • image
  • Indian
  • skin
  • think
  • thought
  • wire

So words and phrases like clonable, Indian summer, and wireless have been updated.

The dictionary has also revised the words from red–refulgent.
