The New Zealand Oxford Dictionary is the first large-scale English dictionary especially prepared for New Zealand users. It has been compiled at the New Zealand Dictionary Centre in Wellington, and reflects both the New Zealand Dictionary Centre's research into New Zealand English and research into international English conducted by Oxford dictionary centres worldwide, especially the research for The Oxford English Dictionary . The New Zealand Oxford Dictionary contains over 100,000 definitions, including over 12,000 New Zealand entries and a wide range of encyclopedic information which provide information about the world, especially its notable persons and places. Also included are a series of Appendices which provide historical, geographical and other information, as well as sections on grammar and punctuation. The Appendices also include both the English and Maori versions of the Treaty of Waitangi and the national anthem, God Defend New Zealand.
