OED Online relaunched

The Oxford English Dictionary has been relaunched. If you have bookmarked the OED Online, please update your bookmark to http://www.oed.com.ezproxy.liv.ac.uk/. (The old site will continue to be available until the end of March 2011 at http://dictionary.oed.com.ezproxy.liv.ac.uk/).

The site has been made easier to use, with many new features:

Search results have changed from simple lists to visualizations/timelines, and you can start with a broad search and use filters to narrow your results.

There are now pages about the OED's most cited authors and texts, with links to the DNB, and an 'Aspects of English' section with descriptive articles on language, past and present.

The entire text of the Historical Thesaurus to the OED has been integrated into the OED Online so that you can follow semantic links throughout the dictionary.
