Edited at the Australian National Dictionary Centre in Canberra, the Australian Integrated School File Dictionary & Thesaurus 2e is an innovative reference book, combining a dictionary and a thesaurus in a single easy-to-use volume. It comes in a handy file format that clips into student's ring-binders. This major second edition has been completely revised and updated, with hundreds of new entries added that reflect the important areas of contemporary word creation.
Based on the latest text of the Australian School Dictionary (2008), the top section of each page contains the dictionary text, while the lower section contains corresponding thesaurus entries for approximately two-thirds of the words covered by the dictionary.
Like other Oxford Australian dictionaries, The Australian Integrated School Dictionary and Thesaurus 2/e draws its ultimate authority from the vast resources of the Oxford English Dictionary and its continually updated database, with Australian material drawn from the Australian National Dictionary and the database of Australian English maintained by the Australian National Dictionary Centre in Canberra.
