Description

1989. First edition. A fine, unmarked copy in a fine d/w.

Description
This is a concise edition of the Australian National Dictionary (OUP 1989) which was hailed as a major asset for readers studying Australian literature that made all earlier dictionaries of Australian English obsolete. The volume contains nearly as many headwords as the original edition, yet provides fewer collations, and indicates the first recorded, and most recent, use of a word. It retains the parent volume's comprehensive coverage of uniquely Australian words and phrases; words for indigenous flora, fauna, and pastimes; and Aboriginal terms.
