The Macquarie Primary Dictionary has been fully revised for this new edition, using research undertaken for its parent, the respected Macquarie Dictionary, Australia’s own record of our language.

Key features of the Macquarie Primary Dictionary include:
more than 12 400 colour headwords with definitions in clear, natural language
new words such as cyber safety, hashtag and welcome to country
sample phrases and sentences to show words in context
a simple re-spelling pronunciation guide
Other words — synonyms within dictionary entries, particularly for overused words
Word building, Word use and Word history entries, including Indigenous language origins
shaded colour panels within the body of the dictionary for advice on punctuation and words often confused
appendixes including grammar and spelling rules, Australia’s Prime Ministers, floral and faunal emblems, and other useful information.
The Macquarie Primary Dictionary is not just another dictionary. It is an essential reference tool in the Australian primary classroom. Its regular use will encourage young readers and writers to use, explore and enjoy the richness of our language.
