A book review in the current edition of the C.B.Q includes the word "tradent".
>From the context in which it appears --and other examples I have come
across-- I realize what the meaning is.
However, I am intrigued to find that the two volume New Shorter Oxford
English Dictionary (1993) does not list this word.
Does anyone know of a dictionary which gives both a definition of this word
and its derivation?
Is it ikely that the immediate origin of the word is German?
BTW, the NSOED is now available on CD-ROM at half the price of the two
bound volumes, and is a _most_ marvellous tool.
I thoroughly recommend it.
