Also available in a handy paperback format, the Australian Concise Oxford Dictionary provides an authoritative description of Australian and international English unrivalled by other concise dictionaries.

This fifth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with hundreds of new words you won’t find in any other dictionary. It provides unmatched coverage of Australian English for a dictionary in this format. The paperback 5th edition of Australian Concise Oxford Dictionary is the perfect companion at home, study or office for all lovers of Australian and International English. It presents those words that are current and relevant in the Australian context. No other Australian dictionary can claim its authority. This authority has two bases: the Australian and the international.

The dictionary was fully edited at the Australian National Dictionary Centre in Canberra. Through Oxford University Press, the editor, Dr Bruce Moore, had access to the most comprehensive database of the English language as it is used worldwide—the same database that informs the twenty-volume Oxford English Dictionary—and to the most recent distillation of it in the Concise Oxford Dictionary. Through the Centre, the editor also had access to the largest citation database of Australian English, the source of Oxford’s Australian National Dictionary. The fifth edition of the Australian Concise Oxford Dictionary is another product of this union, and heralds a new era in Australian lexicography.

Features:

  • Contains over 99,000 headwords
  • Handy paperback format is ideal for study, office or home
  • A major new edition with hundreds of new entries added that reflect the important areas of contemporary word creation
  • Australia’s best-selling concise dictionary (Nielsen BookScan)
