The team was given the objective of publishing an integrated print edition in and also of providing a full, electronic text to form the basis of future revision and extension of the Dictionary. With this XML -based system, the attention of lexicographers can be directed more to matters of content than to presentation issues such as the numbering of definitions.

Furnivall believed that, since many printed texts from earlier centuries were not readily available, it would be impossible for volunteers to efficiently locate the quotations that the dictionary needed.

The Third Edition contained an appendix of addenda and corrigenda, and this edition was reprinted several times with corrections and additions, the most significant being inwith enlarged addenda now running to over 70 pages and a major revision of all the etymologies. With an elegant interface providing quick and intuitive searching, it also has advanced searching facilities for in-depth exploration, allowing searching of the definitions, eytmologies, subject, geographical region of use, register, and source language, as well as the ability to limit searches by the date of a word's first recorded usage.

However, instead of adding new material in supplements to the main edition, or simply interspersing new information throughout the body of the old edition, the entire work is being updated. Furnivall recruited more than volunteers to read these texts and record quotations. Ina single-volume Supplement to the Dictionary was published.

Entries provide pronunciation, parts of speech, date etymology, and definitions.
