Jaguar has taken the initiative to change the definition of the word “car” (“car”) in the Oxford dictionary of the English language. And all because in a historical document in the description of the word did not say anything about cars with zero emissions.
Oxford dictionary of English officially recognized as authoritative linguistic source. For the English-speaking world he is a reliable guide to meaning, history and pronunciation of more than 600,000 words – both legacy and modern.
According to the current description in the Oxford dictionary, the term “vehicle” means “a road vehicle driven by the engine (typically a combustion engine) and is designed to transport the driver and a small number of passengers, usually having two front and two rear wheels; used for private or commercial purposes and also for leisure.”
However, on the website with a collection of online dictionaries at Oxford University the definition of the word “car” is even shorter: “a road vehicle, typically with four wheels, powered by an internal combustion engine and capable of carrying a small number of people”.
Jaguar decided that such a definition is out of date and sent a publishing house in Oxford statement to clarify the meaning of this word. The company proposed to complement it with the phrase “vehicles with alternative propulsion systems, including electric”. I agree with “Jaguar”?
