Description

This new edition not only contains content based upon the acclaimed Fifth Edition of the full Macquarie Dictionary but also even newer additional entries. Includes such up-to-date items as clean fuel, flashpacking, GFC, lifestreaming, textaholic, tidal power and toxic debt. With over 30,000 definitions, it offers a completely up-to-date coverage of the core vocabulary of Australian English in a very handy format and offers valuable usage notes on words which can cause problems for writers of Australian English. For example, there is a note pointing out the common confusion between allusion (a reference to something) and illusion (something that is not real). Notes also point out usage dilemmas, such as when a word is used humorously or offensively.show more
