  2. Hi Jo! Did you read the link? They're discontinuing the print version of the OED due to the rise of the internet, but the Oxford Dictionary of English (a different, one volume edition) is still in print.

    That's okay though... the OED spreads across 20 volumes and I guess demand for a 20-volume dictionary hasn't really picked up in recent years? :D

  3. It still makes me sad, but I'm glad all the various versions of printed Oxford dictionaries will still be there! Phew, I panicked for a moment...
