Macquarie Dictionary- Fifth Edition
This is a brand new, sealed copy of Australia's National Dictionary. Since the Macquarie Dictionary was first published in 1981, its reputation has gone from strength to strength. It is now nationally and internationally regarded as the standard reference on Australian English.
This edition features the complete record of English as it is used in Australia, from the colourfully colloquial to the highly technical. There are thousands of new words, such as animateur, breadcrumb navigation, flashpacker, click-and-mortar, toxic debt, to list a few.
There are illustrative phrases, many from Australian literature, showing how a word is used in context.
This is a fantastic reference book as well as being of great interest to linguaphiles in general.
