Multilingual Thursday, 20th January

1. Thanks to Ann Veitch for this one: great new mini-site from the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) on Varieties of English https://public.oed.com/varieties-of-english/

“The OED has always included words from across the English-speaking world. What’s changed – drastically – since the first edition (first published in fascicles – instalments – between 1884 and 1928) is the size and breadth of the English-speaking population.”

More on the history of the OED here https://www.oed.com/public/editions/loginpage

2. The new issue of Chatham House’s International Affairs journal is free to view, and it’s a special issue guest-edited by Jasmine K. Gani and Jenna Marshall on Race and Imperialism in International Relations: theory and practice https://academic.oup.com/ia/issue/98/1

Here’s the editors’ introduction, ‘The impact of colonialism on policy and knowledge production in International Relations’ https://academic.oup.com/ia/article/98/1/5/6484845 PDF below.

3. I’ve mentioned OASISOpen Accessible Summaries in Language Studies – before https://oasis-database.org/?locale=en It aims to “make research on language learning, use, and education available and accessible to a wide audience.”
