September 2014 update

More than 600 new words, phrases, and senses have entered the Oxford English Dictionary in our latest update, which sees the revision of several everyday words, such as week, day, and group.

New additions this quarter include fact check, workaround, and First World problem.  You can read more about the new and revised words and meanings in this article by Katherine Connor Martin, Head of US Dictionaries.

Our Deputy Chief Editors have written the release notes for September, which take a look at some of the entries in more detail. Philip Durkin examines the history of last, and its associated new phrases fun while it lasted and to last the course, whilst Edmund Weiner investigates the journey of some of the words added to the OED this year, including hi-fi, science fiction, and DIY.
