How to pronounce and orally spell <3?

It’s now an entry in OED, I hear. Anybody know what the actual OED entry says?


The OED doesn’t actually have an entry for ‘♥’, or ‘<3’. It has a new definition for ‘heart’:

trans. colloq. (orig. U.S.). To love; to be fond of.

As to how to pronounce ‘<3’, I think it would generally be the same as heart. To orally spell it out I would say “less than, three”
