Is this ever used as an adjective is any sense other than in reference to Oxford. If only in the Oxford sense, then the attributive use is of the noun. DCDuring TALK 15:55, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

Apparently so. "Few buildings of its sort in New England have been allied in more intimate and diverse fashion to the life of a community during a half-century of what we may call aularian existence." (I can't find a date for that one.) Google Books has more if you search for +aularian -oxford. Equinox 19:15, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Cited. Tagged rare. I suspect this is mostly used by folks who went to Oxford as the word otherwise has far more mentions than uses. DCDuring TALK 19:58, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

RFV passed. Thanks for the cites, nom! —RuakhTALK 03:58, 1 November 2010 (UTC)
