You can find the definition in our online database of the Oxford English Dictionary. Click on the Databases tab to get there. EasyBib explains and gives an example for the citation.

  1. Each entry in the Oxford English Dictionary has a "Cite" link, which cites the term in both the Chicago and the MLA styles, but not, unfortunately, in the APA. The sample citations do, however, give you an idea of what information to include -- e.g.,the term itself, the title (OED Online), the edition (March 2012), the date you accessed the term, and the database URL. Then go to EasyBib and create an APA citation for a Dictionary Entry from an "Online Database.". Once you create the citation, EasyBib will give you the "parenthetical," that is, show you how to refer to this citation in your paper -- e.g, ("Caregiver," n.d.).
