  New Oxford American Dictionary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The New Oxford American Dictionary (NOAD) is a dictionary of North American English created by the American editors at the Oxford University Press U.S. Dictionaries program.
It is based on analysis of Oxford's 200 million word database of contemporary North American English and features a revolutionary defining style.
The New Oxford American Dictionary (NOAD) is based on the New Oxford Dictionary of English (NODE), published in England in 1998, although with substantial editing, additional entries, and the inclusion of illustrations.

 New Oxford Dictionary of English - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The New Oxford Dictionary of English (often abbreviated to NODE) is an English language dictionary first published in 1998 by the Oxford University Press.
This dictionary is not based on the Oxford English Dictionary and should not be mistaken for a new or updated version of the OED.
It is a completely new dictionary which strives to represent as faithfully as possible the current usage of English words.

 Oxford University Press :: 'Podcast' Is the Word of the Year
NEW YORK, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Only a year ago, podcasting was an arcane activity, the domain of a few techies and self-admitted "geeks." Now you can hear everything from NASCAR coverage to NPR's All Things Considered in downloadable audio files called "podcasts".
Erin McKean, editor in chief of the New Oxford American Dictionary, said: "Podcast was considered for inclusion last year, but we found that not enough people were using it, or were even familiar with the concept.

Although regular use of a dictionary will help, and a spell checker will find many, the sound-a-likes are quite elusive.

 Laughing Squid » bläg   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
My friend Arno mentioned that Microsoft’s spellcheck dictionary doesn’t contain the word “blog”, so I looked it up using Tiger’s Dictionary app and found out that (according to this dictionary definition example) blogs are actually “run by twenty-something Americans with at least an unhealthy interest in computers”.
Also, I vote for “bläg”, the phonetic spelling of “blog”, as the new word of choice to describe this medium (no disrespect to Peter of course).
Dictionary usage examples usually use real-life examples found in print somewhere, so it’s quite possible that something you write will wind up in a dictionary.

 Reviews: The New Oxford American Dictionary
In this new edition, a press release tells me with the modesty characteristic of such documents, Erin McKean has added 2000 new terms and hundreds of new photographs, plus better layout (I resist the blurb’s readability, though it’s there on page 1409).
As always, it’s the new entries listed in the press release that provoke the most interest, if only to confirm the belief of curmudgeons that the language is well on its way to hell in a handcart, helped by permissive dictionary makers who let any old neologism into their pages.
If you’re looking for a desk dictionary that covers the spectrum of American English, with a fair quantity of encyclopaedic information and illustration thrown in, you could do a lot worse.
