Lexico appears to be a new website that is now what used to be the English Oxford Dictionaries (OED) online.

The previous URL that I used to access the English OED online when I needed a definition or thesaurus was en.oxforddictionaries.com  (the link opens in a new tab). As of roughly winter 2019, that en.oxforddictionaries.com site redirects to Lexico (lexico.com) yet it appears that the English OED online located there has just changed names to Lexico. The reason I say this is because on the left, next to the search bar for the site lexico.com  (the link opens in a new tab), it states, “Lexico, powered by Oxford.”

Aside from the new name, I only in roughly the past few months realized that the site offers more to its visitors than simply a dictionary and a thesaurus. The Lexico site offers articles and these can be found on the top menu bar of their homepage. What I’d like to reblog about here is their section on “Grammar” articles. You can find them located at lexico.com/grammar  (the link opens in a new tab). One category in the grammar section that caught my eye was the “Writing Tips (the link opens in a new tab) section, which includes categories of its own such as “How to Build a Piece of Writing (the link opens in a new tab), “Tips for Job Applications (the link opens in a new tab), “Tips for Writing Essays (the link opens in a new tab) which should presumably help students, “Types of Business Writing (the link opens in a new tab), and more.

This PCWorld  (the link opens in a new tab) article was written by contributor Ian Paul  (the link opens in a new tab) and lists out a comparison of cloud storage points between the services Google Drive  (the link opens in a new tab) and Microsoft OneDrive  (the link opens in a new tab). Mr. Paul’s article spells out six different points during his comparison with a “winner” cloud storage system at the end of each comparison point. The six comparison points are “pricing and value” with winners of both “value” and “pure storage amount,” “search” with a “search” winner, “on-the-desktop” with a winner, “end-to-end encryption” with a winner, “added security” with a winner, and Mr. Paul then ends the article with his “conclusion” section (Paul).

It appears there is now “a deeper integration of Samsung and Microsoft services ever since the two companies announced their strategic partnership at the Galaxy Note 10 launch. . . . [A] report by Sammobile indicates that Microsoft’s OneDrive is set to replace Samsung’s in-house cloud storage service eventually” (Ganti).
