Oxford Dictionary of English

The Oxford Dictionary of English, formerly The New Oxford Dictionary of English (NODE), is a single-volume English language dictionary first published in 1998 by Oxford University Press. This dictionary is not based on the Oxford English Dictionary and should not be mistaken for a new or updated version of the OED. It is a completely new dictionary which strives to represent as faithfully as possible the current usage of English words.

The 2005 edition contains 355,000 words, phrases, and definitions, including biographical references. A 3rd edition was published in August 2010, with some new definitions (such as vuvuzela).

It is at present the largest single-volume English-language dictionary published by Oxford.

    My English text is chaste, and all licentious passages are left in the obscurity of a learned language.
    Edward Gibbon (1737–1794)

    I wonder anybody does anything at Oxford but dream and remember, the place is so beautiful. One almost expects the people to sing instead of speaking. It is all ... like an opera.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The much vaunted male logic isn’t logical, because they display prejudices—against half the human race—that are considered prejudices according to any dictionary definition.
