The problem with definitions is that they need to change and be updated to stay relevant. Why else would my friend, the renowned lexicographer Tony Cowie, even though he's now 80, be continualkly working on ipdating The Oxford Dictionary of Current Idiomatic English? A definition from 1954 is way past its sell-by date.
