The world’s first historical thesaurus

45 years after the project began, the world’s first historial thesaurus is set to be published.

The Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary will contain almost every word in English from Old English to the present day.

It will contain nearly 800,000 meanings, organised along similar lines to Roget’s Thesaurus, into more than 236,000 categories and subcategories.
