Oxford English Dictionary’s Treasure Hunt

The OED has put out a public call to track down a book thought to be the original source of 51 words. The text in question is Meanderings of Memory, authored by person-of-mystery ‘Nightlark’. If your interest has not quite been piqued, the book is also ‘possibly pornographic’. No prize has been offered, which feels like a missed opportunity. (KL)
