Description

The ultimate guide to contemporary Australian English.

The ultimate guide to contemporary Australian English, this is a major revision of the most authoritative Australian Dictionary for all Australians. This flagship dictionary draws on the databases of Australian English at the Australian National Dictionary Centre – including its fast-growing national corpus and its research into Australian English, as well as the resources of the incomparable Oxford English Dictionary

The Australian Oxford Dictionary is edited by Australia's most influential lexicographer, Dr Bruce Moore. As in all his Oxford dictionaries, Dr Moore is attuned to new currents in Australian language and usage. He includes a full range of neologisms, especially the protean language of younger Australians and of computing and electronic communication. This is not just a dictionary for scholars and pedants. It reveals our changing language in up-to-date and entertaining ways, and it will be an essential reference for the new millennium.
