Oxford’s Word Window: Week Seven

We are in week seven of our Word Window series in which we display an Oxford Word of the Week, culled from The Oxford English Dictionary in the windows in front of our NYC office on Madison between 34th and 35th street.

Last week’s word was: Nugatory adj.: Trifling, negligible; of no intrinsic value or importance; worthless.

In case you aren’t in NYC or didn’t get a chance to walk by the office here is what it looked like:

This week’s word is: Oleaginous.

Stop by the window to see its definition or check back on the blog next week!
