This new edition of the Australian Oxford Mini Dictionary has been completely revised and updated, with hundreds of new entries added that reflect the important areas of contemporary word creation. The Australian Oxford Mini Dictionary is written for those who need a compact guide to the spelling and meaning of words in the English language today.
With over 22,000 headwords, the Australian Oxford Mini Dictionary contains over 45,000 clear definitions with Australian usage in mind, often supplemented with example sentences and phrases. Usage notes are also provided to help with spelling, style, and easily confused words.
Like other Australian dictionaries published by Oxford University Press, this dictionary draws on the continually updated database of Australian English at the Australian National Dictionary Centre at the Australian National University in Canberra, as well as the vast resources of the Oxford English Dictionary and its continually updated database.
Edited by Mark Gwynn, Researcher and Editor at the Australian National Dictionary Centre at the Australian National University, Canberra, the words in this dictionary have been chosen with careful attention to the needs and interests of its intended audience.
