Pass plays and right-handed gloves: revising American sporting terms in OED3
- Alternative title:
- Presented at Researching Words 2 session
The start of the online publication of OED3 almost exactly coincided with the establishment of an OED editorial office in America, so that editorial work on North American terms could be handled by native speakers. Much of this work was of an expected sort: drafting new words that derived from, say, rap music; pointing out differing American nuances in existing entries; or revising usage notes or metalanguage for terms not used, or used quite differently, in one variety of English.
