In honor of National Dictionary Day, which celebrated the Oct. 16 birthday of American lexicographer Noah Webster, Oxford Language Dictionaries Online is offering free public access to its bilingual French, Italian, Spanish, and German dictionaries. The offer is good through Sunday, Oct. 21.
P.S. If you simply can't get enough of the chord/cord/rein/reign discussion that began here yesterday, read Dennis Baron's excellent post in The Web of Language on Noah Webster's attempts at language reform. There I learned, among other things, that Webster wanted Americans to spell "deaf" deef and "bridegroom" bridegoom. Read the post to find out why.
