Abstract:

The Oxford English Dictionary occupies a special place in the history
of English, cultural as well as linguistic. This collection sets out
to explore the pioneering endeavors in both lexicography and
lexicology which led to the making of its first edition. Making use of
much unpublished archive material, the essays brings a wide variety of
perspectives to bear upon the OED, and the particular problems posed
by the attempt to break new ground in its formation.

"Timely . . . Mugglestone should be congratulated on bringing together
an international team of experts and producing such a coherent volume
of consistent excellence . . . should be required reading for every
dictionary editor."--Jeremy Smith, Notes and Queries, June 2002
