Re: [mythsoc] A question about the OED (1879/1883)
Well, Vivien Stocker has just replied and pointed this URL : http://www.oed.com/public/oedhistory
Apparently, it is 1884.
We'll make a correction in the next round of addenda and corrigenda. 1879 is when Murray and OUP became involved in the dictionary project.
