The Second Edition of A Dictionary of Canadianisms on Historical Principles, DCHP-2 combines the legacy data of the first edition from 1967, DCHP-1, with a systematically re-conceptualized update focusing on 20th- and 21st-century words and meanings, including a revision of select DCHP-1 entries. As an historical dictionary, this work shows changes in the meanings of words over time, using dated quotations to illustrate these shifts. Thus, DCHP-2 includes words that have become outdated or obsolete and lists for the sake of historical completeness words and meanings that are considered offensive or derogatory today. These words, however, are clearly marked. To start using the dictionary, use either „quicksearch“, „Search Entries“ or „Browse Entries“ from the menu on the left. DCHP-2 is available in open access.
