Oxford English Dictionary for Britons

Free limited access to the Oxford English Dictionary for Britons

Tom sez, "In conjunction with a six-part series showing on the BBC at the moment, the Oxford English Dictionary is allowing free access to the full dictionary with all the fascinating citations and etymologies." While this is deeply cool, there are two genuinely sucky caveats: one, this will vanish when the show finishes its first season and two, the OED is using whacky IP-address filtering to try to limit this to Britain. Cos, you know, people outside of Britain aren't interested in speaking English. Link
