Compiled specifically with the needs of Australian
primary school students in mind!
Each dictionary 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. The dictionaries are then edited according to the
needs of each age level and the demands of the curriculum, covering the
Lower, Middle and Upper Primary years.
The Australian Primary Dictionary
clearly defines the words that children aged 10–12 are likely to
encounter in their reading or want to use in their writing. Great care
has been taken to include words from a range of subject areas, to
provide help right across the curriculum.
