Week 1
  • “weird, v.Oxford English Dictionary. Online Edition.*
*To access the Oxford English Dictionary, go to the Cornell Library website and type 'OED' into the main search box and follow the link. The OED is the place for the word on words. And their slogan does't mince them: "The definitive record of the English language". What is so unique about the OED is that each entry includes information about the terms etymological origins, published quotations of its earliest usage, subsequent changes in its usage, timelines of usage frequency, and other fascinating details. If you need to cite a definition in a paper, the OED is your best bet.
