This section of EOED, under continuous development, has been created to investigate OED’s use of quotation sources grouped according to period, genre, and other categories. Pages in the Leverhulme study, which survey selected 18th-century quotation sources by female writers as an under-represented body in the OED, were published on our original website in 2010 and are carried over largely unchanged. Pages on the quotation of dictionaries and newspapers are in preparation.
