tardis in oed againBookmark and Share

Saturday, 28 September 2002 - Reported by Shaun Lyon
The Oxford Shorter English Dictionary has come out again, and this time included in this popular edition is the word TARDIS. The word previously appeared in the much larger version, but this is the first mainstream book to include the Doctor Who title. Some of the other words to be included in the Oxford Shorter English Dictionary, due to their use in the vernacular, are Jedi, Klingon, Dilithium, Warp Drive, get real, text messaging and just war.
