On-line Resources Close this window

Oxford English Dictionary, Online Edition. Accessible to the Rice community over the internet, and also available on CD-ROM in the language lab. The CD-ROM is great for doing serious searching of the various databases comprising the dictionary. For example, you can search for all the Arabic loanwords in the dictionary, or search for all instances of a word in all quotations between 1600-1800, and other specialized searches. There is a little handbook describing the online OED and its searching capacities in the language lab that you can check out with the CD-ROM. The OED is also available in book form, see under (Book) Dictionaries below.

Online Merriam Webster's Dictionary

Roget's Thesaurus. A wonderful resource. The classic synonym dictionary based on semantic groupings. Helps you find just the right word (le mot juste).

Webster's Thesaurus. Merriam Webster's version of an online Thesaurus.

Yourdictionary.com (formerly "A Web of On-line Dictionaries"). Allows a search for a word in multiple on-line dictionaries at once. Also does searches for foreign words. Very handy for brand-new or nonce loanwords adopted by writers in English from other languages they know.

A.Word.A.Day. A "Word Server" for those who are captivated by the music and magic of words. This server sends subscribers an email a day with an interesting word, its definition and etymology. As a bonus, it includes a useful quote (epigram). You can subscribe or just read the words on the web.

Word Play. A great web site with many links for word lovers. Slang lists, pun pages, palindromes, etymologies, anagrams--you name it.

World Wide Words. Another great site for word lovers. One section contains brief articles on particular word-topics including slang terms for money, origins of color words, language games of various kinds, etc. Other categories are newly-noted words in English ("The Word Hoard"), Usage Notes, observations on ongoing semantic changes, and other lexical explorations.

The Sesquipedalian. Stanford University's newsletter for language and linguistics. Includes tidbits on words and language, mainly focused on English.
