Oxford English Dictionary API

The OED bills itself as the definitive record of the English language. The OED SRU service (search/retrieve via URL) provides a means to automate basic queries, using a standard syntax to represent queries, and a standard protocol for returning results. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in XML.
