"It is not just the meaning of a word but the feel of a word that counts. The end result when we wish to compile a list of these particular words is a dictionary that characterises us as a community." KATE GRENVILLE, international award-winning Australian author.

The Macquarie Dictionary Seventh Edition -- Australia's National Dictionary is a comprehensive and up-to-date dictionary of Australian English. It covers words and meanings which are particular to our variety of English, as well as those common to the whole English-speaking world, with evidence sourced from corpus data.

The Seventh Edition features thousands of new words and senses, such as grandcare, rumbler alarm, fitspiration, modest wear, cool burn, freecycle, grolar bear, digital tattoo, listicle, captain's call, robopoll, vamping, spiraliser and slackpacking.

It also includes:
* words and phrases from regional Australia
* slang and colloquialisms
* words from Aboriginal English
* etymologies (word origins)
* illustrative phrases, many from Australian literature, which clearly show how a word is used in context
* valuable usage notes to clarify common language questions
* a guide to punctuation
* Foreword by Kate Grenville, international award-winning Australian author

The Macquarie Dictionary -- Australia's National Dictionary was first published in 1981, and is now both nationally and internationally regarded as the standard reference on Australian English.

To celebrate this seventh edition, each copy also comes with a free one-year subscription to the Macquarie Dictionary Online (www.macquariedictionary.com.au).
