Oxford English Dictionary

Access to Oxford University’s historic English dictionary added to PMWL

18 August 2016 – Dallas, USA and London, UK - A new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) in the Glossaries and Dictionaries section.  The new resource is titled "Oxford English Dictionary."

Oxford University has been making dictionaries for more than 150 years.  Today focuses on current English and includes all the main current meanings and uses of words, gathered by analysing and monitoring data from the Oxford Corpus. It’s based on a very long history of creating the most comprehensive and up-to-date dictionaries, and includes many thousands of new words in regular updates. In August 2015 more than 80,000 words from the OED were added, many uncommon but each considered a part of modern English

Accurate and effective communication is widely recognized as critical to successful program/project management (P/PM).  While P/PM - specific words, terms and phrases are important, a clear understanding of many other words is also often needed (and should be agreed) by both senders and receivers of project communications.  Access to this English language dictionary is now available to help improve P/PM communications.

To access this new resource, go to the Glossaries section in the PMWL at, click on English Language Dictionaries, and scroll down to find the resource.  Free access, but must be registered and logged in.
