Australian English is both a unique historical record of the social, cultural, and other forces that have shaped Australia over 200 years of European settlement and living testimony to the concerns, attitudes and preoccupations of modern Australians. The Australian National Dictionary is the first comprehensive, historically based record of the 10,000 words which make up the Australian contribution to the English language. Each and every entry provides its own fascinating insight into Australia's rich and diverse linguistic heritage." – from the front fold over panel blurb.
