OED spelling

To check a spelling, bring up your search engine and type in OED followed by the word you’re unsure about. My last query was ‘up to date’ and whether it was hyphenated. The Oxford English Dictionary has always been my dictionary of choice, but there are others. As for the answer – yes it is!
