Oxford Dictionaries Secret Stash

Does Oxford English Dictionary keep a list of pronunciations like the word Oxoniensis that is not available to the public?

If the OED does have such non-publicly available lists what what are some of the categories?

    Hi @vincitygialampark
    Both the OED and the dictionary of current English offer the pronunciation key - both the phonetic notation and audio recordings.
    The word you mentioned is not an entry on its own, but Oxonian is.
    If you open the link, you will be able to see the pronunciation information.
    I hope this helps! :)
