I am writing to let you know that the latest issue of OED News is now
available at   http://www.oed.com/public/news/0009.htm in both text and pdf
format. The issue includes articles looking at the process of revising an
OED entry - from a technical, and from a more personal point of view.

OED News is now published quarterly, and we will let you know by e-mail as
soon as each issue is published, to keep you informed about the latest news
and developments on the OED.  OED News contains articles by editors,
researchers, and contributors on their work for the OED, regular updates on
the overall progress of the revision programme, and reports on other items
that the editors come across in the course of their research. Each issue
also contains an Appeals List, consisting of words and phrases for which
entries are currently being drafted or revised, and for which further
evidence is needed.

I hope that you enjoy reading OED News, and that you will be able to help
the OED revision project by submitting material in response to our Appeals
