The Alicorn Project is a discontinued project aiming to gather supporting quotations using the word "alicorn" in the meaning "horn of the unicorn".

In 1999 Oxford English Dictionary announced that it would allow its users to send words to be added in its Third Edition, provided their use would be backed by a variety of quotes from published literature. Matthew Webber, owner of the Unicorn Dream website, started the project to gather quotations and add "alicorn" to the Oxford Dictionary.
