Edwards and the Oxford Dictionary

politics / religion

I wonder how dictionary entries are edited. For instance, what most people would consider a simple task — define the word ‘Edwards’. Not so simple, as it turns out.

This is so incomplete. Mark L. Ward, Jr. originally took this screenshot of the Mac OS X 10.5 Dictionary app, noting the Oxford Dictionary only focused on extremism:

Edwards in Mac OS X 10.5

Yeah, see, the other part of the screenshot will probably need revising, as well.
