Recent updates to the OED

The OED is updated four times a year, every March, June, September, and December.

The material added to the dictionary includes revised versions of existing entries (which replace the older versions), and new words and senses both within the alphabetical sequence of revised entries and also across the whole A to Z range.

Published quarterly since 2000, the updates make up the Third Edition of the OED.

Hundreds of new words, phrases, and senses have entered the Oxford English Dictionary in the September 2015 update. Additions this quarter include  hoverboardtelly addictwater baby, and underwater hockey. You can read more about the new and revised words and meanings in this article by Jonathan Dent, Assistant Editor of the OED.
