EAC name-change update

Mark Allen

Don't put away your apostrophe yet: the name change apparently is not formal. The shortened form is just the new branding of the EAC/ACR.

In the same week Oxford

In the same week Oxford Dictionaries announced the inclusion of amazeballs, binge-watch, clickbait and many other new words into its online edition, the Toronto Globe and Mail asked a compelling question: Who is speaking up for Canadian English?

The article notes that Sunday is the 10-year anniversary of the last publication of the widely used Oxford Canadian Dictionary. The Oxford Canadian was created and published in 1998 and updated in 2004, but there is no longer a separate Canada-based staff of lexicographers studying the language with the aim of updating the tome. There is no separate Canadian presence on the Oxford Dictionaries website. My premium subscription gives me the option of viewing the site from a US or UK perspective.
