If you have had any experience with the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), you are familiar with its astonishing size and depth of coverage of the English language. And yet, it's not the most readable of books, is it? The OEDILF Project set out to change this. We wanted to make the OED more reader-friendly and what is the most reader-friendly of all forms of writing? Why, the limerick, of course! To this end, our goal was to rewrite the entire OED in limerick form. To date, more than 21,000 limericks have been entered, defining everything from a capella to Bnai Brith, and growing every day.
