Oxford English Dictionary

Wonderful online resource giving 'a truly astounding picture of the English language as an extraordinary living phenomenon' (Robert McCrum). Over 500,000 words, the complete 23 volumes for £350 subscription. If this is a bit steep, there's, but this is really just a consolation prize and too lightweight for serious browsing.
