Webinar: The Oxford English Dictionary for Chinese users
The Oxford English Dictionary for Chinese users: resources to support teaching and academic research
Thu 14th October, 14:00 CST (UTC +8)/07:00 BST (UTC +1)
The OED is a powerful online linguistic resource, providing features, tools, and language data which are essential for academic research and teaching. However, the extent of the OED capabilities is not always explored to its full potential.
Join the Oxford University Press team – Dr Danica Salazar, World English Editor, and Ms Chen Zhou, Regional Customer Trainer, for a live interactive online session where they will provide an overview of all the OED can offer:
- More than a dictionary: an overview of the OED functionality and content, including the available resources related to recent language developments, and the coverage of words of Chinese origin
- Available support: the training and resources available to users
- Q&A time: bring your questions to the panellists
Our guest speaker, Dr Zhong Ai, Lecturer in English at Shanghai Maritime University, will be presenting her perspectives of how the OED can be used in academic research, with a particular focus on the language contact between English and Chinese, and Chinese loanwords in English.
