Next Edition of OED May Be Online Only; Trees Rejoice

The increasing use of Internet reference resources has not escaped the editors of the revered Oxford English Dictionary, the most current printed edition of which is a 20-volume, 130-pound stack of dead-tree product. The respective trend lines for the OED’s hardback sales and Web subscriptions are such, said the publisher Sunday, that the next edition–one-quarter done but still a decade or so away from completion–will probably never see print in its complete form. The online version, now 10 years old, is getting a major refresh in December.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
