Football Manager 2009 Language Superpack Update
In the months preceding this update, our editors have also contributed to The Climate Connection, a ten-part podcast series from the British Council which explores the relationship between the climate crisis and language education. Listen to the podcast or read the accompanying blog posts.
This is the second OED update to cover linguistic developments relating to the Covid-19 pandemic. Once again, this falls outside of our usual quarterly publication cycle, and once again these new and updated entries are being made available free to all at oed.com. As well as many new and newly familiar terms, we have also revised a number of relevant terms which were already in the OED but have assumed added meaning or significance in 2020. As a historical dictionary the OED has an obligation to tell the whole story of a word, but our constant monitoring of language also allows us to see (and tell) those stories as they emerge and change.
This is a significant update for the OED, and something of a departure, coming as it does outside our usual quarterly publication cycle. But these are extraordinary times, and OED lexicographers are in a unique position to track the development of the language we are using and to present the histories of these words.
This update also sees the addition of many new words, senses, and sub-entries relating to the term bastard, such as bastardly, bastard bearing, and bastardize. OED Senior Editor, Matthew Bladen explores when bastard originally entered the English language, along with the multitude of senses associated with the word, and the transformative journey it has taken in the OED over the last 150 years in his piece. Read the full article here.
This update also sees the revision of a number of words in the English language that have begun to establish multiple uses far from their original meanings over time. Editorial Content Director, Graeme Diamond, uses bonnet as a way to explore this in his article.
Chief Editor Michael Proffitt sets the update in historical context and discusses the naming of wars, while Senior Editor Kate Wild and Associate Editor Andrew Ball explore the impact and enduring historical legacy of World War I on the English language.
This March, we have added 1,947 new and revised entries to the OED, totalling 5,858 lexical items. As well a range of new words, this update sees the revision of time, which is the most-used noun in the English language. Read more about our new additions here, or find out more about the latest steps in our revision programme here.
In the June 2012 update we revise some 2,500 SUB- and SUPER- words, including subculture, subvert, supercool, superhero, and supernatural. Super- has been a particularly productive prefix in American political language in 2012: new additions include topical words like super PAC, supermajority, and superdelegate.

He has been in the news a few times for lawsuits. In the 1990s, his daughter Heather sued Duke University for allegedly violating Title IX, the federal law that prohibits schools from discriminating based on sex, when she was cut from the football team. (She won $2 million in damages.) In 2009, he sued the manufacturer of a model train set for allegedly charging him $2.7 million, claiming it should have cost about $2,000 less. A federal judge sent the case to a Michigan state court; Mercer won the case there.
February 17, 2009 Money manager Robert Allen Stanford now has two things in common with embattled investment manager Bernard Madoff: both have come under scrutiny for allegedly defrauding their investors, and both have given significant funds to politicians. Between its PAC and its employees, Stanford Financial Group has given $2.4 million to federal candidates, parties and committees since 2000.
