The Concise Australian National Dictionary contains all 10,000 words found in the parent dictionary, published by Oxford in 1988. It includes combinations and collocations, as well as definitions, etymologies and pronunciations. For each word listed, the earliest citation is given, along with at least one other quotation. It therefore traces all those words which were coined in Australia, which have a wider currency in Australia than elsewhere, or which have special significance in Australian history. A virtual compendium of the national temperament, it is a rich slice of Australia's linguistic, cultural and social identity.
