Thanks to everyone for the entries and explanations. I actually did not intend to bring the good work of the OED into question. I too have seen updates appear in a timely manner
but thinking that the Bowie knife submission did indeed fall within the letter range under investigation I was beginning to think that the digital submission process had somehow become scrambled. Good to know that all is well. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for the '33 supplement info and Barry Popik's site fills things out quite well.
