Author(s): Macquarie Dictionary 4
'Macquarie Thesaurus' is the first thesaurus ever written to be based on the distinctly Australian use of English. This new edition has been totally reworked from the database of the highly-respected 'Macquarie Dictionary' and updated from its store of new words. It therefore contains a wide range of contemporary words, both general and technical, as well as many phrases and colloquialisms. In addition to being a useful book, the 'Thesaurus' is also a browseable book because it offers another way in to Australia culture.
The Macquarie Thesaurus is a companion to the Macquarie Dictionary Fourth Edition. The thesaurus helps you find the word you want; the dictionary defines it. The dictionary and the thesaurus thus connect in an intimate fashion to facilitate your day-to-day use of Australian English.
