As part of our exploration of new ways for researchers to harness the power of the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) dataset, we are currently investigating ways to provide filtered, downloadable wordlists from the OED dataset.

We have developed a proof of concept application to enable researchers to build customizable searches specific to their needs and interests. Results can be previewed in a browser, before being exported as an easily analyzable csv or json file.

We are now inviting members of the academic community to become testers of the proof of concept application. Register your interest to receive a link to the tool and to share your thoughts about its future development.
