I don't assume false things for any context. I referred to the OED,
not the "online OED" (which is probably available from your public
library). The OED, in case you didn't know that, is a *book* (or
rather, a shelf of them), and it's just as reasonable to refer to it
as to any other book, in this or any other context.
