It's fairly common knowledge that OED lists senses of a given headword in the chronological order research has found printed evidence for: it is a historical dictionary.
Equally conveniently, the order adopted by (I'd say most of the) other respected English dictionaries is frequency of use [as found by surveys].
However, Webster's New World College Dictionary, Fifth Edition  contains, for instance,
- (1) RARE deathly pale; wan
- (2) glowing through a haze, as flames enveloped by smoke
(3) • (a) vivid in a harsh or shocking way; startling; sensational
• (b) characterized by violent passion or crime: a lurid tale
I assume that this dictionary is also historical.
Is there a resource (article?) showing which English dictionaries are historical, which arrange senses in the order they deem reflects frequency of usage, and any other types?
