Sonic Screwdriver is now in the Oxford English Dictionary
For many years now, Dr Who has been using a Sonic Screwdriver to, well, do pretty much whatever that week’s plot demands with little overall definition, but a form of recognition has arrived: it’s going to be in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Yes, we’re not really sure who’s promoting who here, so do the OED really need a Dr Who hits boost, or has the word really got that big? In case you’re wondering, here’s how they define it:
“a (hand-held) electronic device which uses sound waves to perform various mechanical and technical functions. Originally and chiefly in (or in reference to) the British television series ‘Doctor Who.'”
And everything else needed.
