"The Australian Modern Oxford Dictionary Third Edition contains the full text of the fourth edition of The Australian Oxford Paperback Dictionary, but has the added benefits of colour headwords and a durable vinyl cover. With over 70,000 headwords, the third edition of The Australian Modern Oxford Dictionary retains the popular features of the second edition (including encyclopedic entries), adds many new Australian and international words and meanings, and provides detailed guidance on usage. There is a special emphasis on Aboriginal culture and history. The Australian Modern Dictionary specifically examines words that have been borrowed from Aboriginal languages, with an etymology section that specifies the language from which each of the words have been borrowed. Up-to-date encyclopedic entries for the names of famous people, places, events, and institutions are also provided. The new words in this edition come from a variety of areas and include: Al Qaeda, Bali bombing, Benedict XVI, Lauren Jackson, Kyoto Protocol, Osama Bin Laden, Peter Jackson, Jemaah Islamiah, avian influenza, blog, botox, google, intelligent design and podcast."--Publisher's website.
