  • Let me clarify what is probably the most important thing about this press release, which is that it is not about the Oxford English Dictionary [oed.com], but rather about the Oxford Dictionary of English, a different work.

    As discussed elsewhere in this thread, there has been an entry drafted for Perl for the OED for some time, and it will probably be published later this year. As of this moment however Perl is not in the OED.

    I have nothing to do with the Oxford Dictionary of English, so I can't address any issues about this work, such as the relative merits of cyberslacking.
