December 2014 update
More than 500 new words, phrases, and senses have entered the Oxford English Dictionary in December’s update. Many entries have been fully revised for the first time in over 90 years, including good, better, best, and well.
Our Deputy Chief Editors have written the release notes for this update, which take a look at some of the entries in more detail. Philip Durkin investigates words beginning with un- and their counterparts; Edmund Weiner explores un- words with multiple meanings, including unrigged and unravelled.
See a full list of the new words, subentries, and senses added in this update.
