Although this is not directly an operatic post, the products and service
offered below certainly include a lot of operatic references.
For those not already members, the Book of the Month Club is offering
free access to the Online Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary (2nd
Ed. plus all recent and ongoing additions) to those who accept their new
member offer of 5 books for $1.00 at the following website:
The individual yearly subscription cost for the online OED is $550.00.
Since BOMC is a corporate/institutional subscriber, its members get to
use it free.
The online edition is frequently updated, so it contains a lot more than
even the recently printed 2nd Ed..
There is no other great dictionary in the world that can compare with the
OED, so this is an offer that should be taken without hesitation by all
dictionary lovers/users who own computers
