It embraces not only the standard language of literature and conversation, whether current at the moment, or obsolete, or archaic, but also the main technical vocabulary, and a large measure of dialectical usage and slang. Its basis is a collection of some five millions of excerpts from English literature of every period amassed by an army of voluntary readers and the editorial staff. Such a collection of evidence--it is represented by a selection of 1,800,000 quotations actually printed--could form the only possible foundation for the historical treatment of every word and idiom which is the raison d'être of the work." ; VG,VG.
