The MACQUARIE CONCISE DICTIONARY fourth edition, like its parent dictionary, continues to change, adapt and adjust to reflect Australian language. It is both international and uniquely Australian, making it the standard dictionary for all Australians. It packs the richness of Macquarie lexicography into a compact reference book. The fourth edition of the MACQUARIE CONCISE features: thousands of new words and up-to-date definitions such as metrosexual, Hollywood tape, ambush marketing, soba, and therapeutic cloning; new computer words and related technical jargon such as palmtop, mouse mat, push technology, and splash screen; over 1000 new encyclopedic entries covering people and events such as the Asian Tsunami and Osama bin Laden, and personalities, both international and local, such as Cate Blanchett and Roger Federer. Even Makybe Diva is in!
