- Oxford Word of the Month
Each year the Australian National Dictionary Centre (ANDC) selects a Word of the Year from a shortlist drawn up by our research and editorial staff. The words chosen for the shortlist are selected on the basis of their having come to some prominence in the Australian social and cultural landscape during the year. This year we invite members of the public to submit their suggestions for Word of the Year.
The Word of the Year does not have to be a word that was coined in this current year. Most new words often take some time to enter public consciousness. For example, the Centre’s Word of the Year for 2012 was green-on-blue: ‘an attack made on one’s own side by a force regarded as neutral’. Evidence for this term can be found before 2012 but the word gained prominence in the media during 2012 due to Australia’s ongoing military involvement in Afghanistan.
Our Word of the Year is chosen for its relevance and prominence in Australian culture and society but it does not have to be coined or used exclusively in Australia.
We welcome all suggestions. The word you suggest could be a new word, or a word that became so ubiquitous this year in the Australian media that it deserves consideration. Previous Words of the Year include podcast (2006), GFC (2008), and twitter (2009).
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions. We look forward to receiving your contributions!

Australian National University
Australian National Dictionary
The "Australian National Dictionary Centre" was established in 1988 with the twin purposes of conducting research into "Australian English" and providing Oxford University Press with editorial expertise for their range of Australian dictionaries. It is jointly funded by the "Australian National University" and Oxford University Press Australia.
The Centre takes its name from The "Australian National Dictionary": A "Dictionary of Australianisms" on Historical Principles which was published by Oxford University Press in 1988. This is the first comprehensive, historically-based record of the 10,000 words which are a part of the Australian contribution to the English language. It records the historical development of Australian words and phrases from their earliest use to the present day, providing evidence of this history in some 60,000 dated and referenced quotations drawn from over 9,000 Australian sources.
The "Australian National Dictionary" took ten years to compile. Work on a second expanded and revised edition is in progress. Since 1988 we have continued to read Australian books, manuscripts, magazines, newspapers, etc., in search of evidence about the history and development of Australian words.
The Centre is the leading researcher into the issue of "regionalism in Australian English". The publication in 1994 of Words from the West: A Glossary of Western Australian Terms demonstrated that regional variation in Australian English is much more significant than had hitherto been suspected. In 2001 "Voices of Queensland: Words from the Sunshine State" (2001) was published, and "Bardi Grubs and Frog Cakes: South Australian Words" (2004).
The Centre is committed to the study of words which have been borrowed from Aboriginal languages, as evidenced by the publication in "Australian Aboriginal Words in English" (1990). It has also advanced research in the area of Aboriginal English, publishing "Aboriginal English: A Cultural History" in 1996.
The Centre also edits Australian dictionaries for Oxford University Press Australia. These have included: "The Australian Pocket Oxford Dictionary", "The Australian Little Oxford Dictionary" and "The Australian Primary Dictionary".
In 2003 the fourth edition of "The Australian Concise Oxford Dictionary" was published. The second edition of "The Australian Oxford Dictionary of English" was published in November 2004. Australian Oxford dictionaries published in 2005 include the third edition of the "Australian Oxford Mini Dictionary", and the third edition of the "Australian Student's Colour Dictionary". "Diggerspeak: The Language of Australians at War", by Amanda Laugesen, was published in April 2005.
ANDC - Australian National Dictionary Centre
The Australian National Dictionary
The Centre's most important publication, the AND is a comprehensive record of the Australian language as it has developed from colonial times to the present.
The Centre produces many Oxford Dictionaries, including The Australian Oxford Dictionary, The Australian Concise Oxford Dictionary, and The Australian Oxford Mini Dictionary.
As well as producing standard dictionaries, the Centre also produces a range of specialised studies in aspects of Australian English. These include regional dictionaries that study the language of Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, and Western Australia, and historical studies that look at the language of gold rushes and the convict era.
Aussie English for Beginners
A three volume series published by the National Museum of Australia which takes a light-hearted look at the rich and distinct vocabulary of Australian English, with definitions provided by the Australian National Dictionary Centre and cartoons by David Pope. The series is based on a display in the Nation: Symbols of Australia gallery at the National Museum of Australia.
Ozwords is the free official newsletter of the Australian National Dictionary Centre. It is published twice a year and contains news, articles about Australian English, and a competition in every issue. Subscription is free, and issues are available to read or download here.

Australian National Dictionary
In the tradition of the "Oxford English Dictionary", the "Australian National Dictionary Centre" - a joint initiative of the "Australian National University" and "Oxford University Press" - published "The Australian National Dictionary": A Dictionary of Australianisms on Historical Principles in 1988.
Oxford University Press has been publishing in Australia since 1908 and, in recognition of this milestone and as a symbol of gratitude to the Australian people, The Australian National Dictionary has been made available online, free.
This free online dictionary brings the wealth of information contained in The Australian National Dictionary within easy reach. Use the search bar or the index at the top of the page to find detailed entries of words from the Australian English vocabulary.
First published in 1988, The Australian National Dictionary was the first comprehensive, historically based record of the 10,000 words and idioms that make up the Australian contribution to the English language. It records the historical development of Australian words and phrases from their earliest use to the present day, providing evidence of this history in some 60,000 dated and referenced quotations drawn from more than 9000 Australian sources.

Lexical Images: The Story of the Australian National Dictionary
Bill Ramson, former Director of The Australian National Dictionary Centre relates in detail the fascinating and sometimes controversial story behind the making of an Australian icon, the Australian National Dictionary, the first historical dictionary of Australianisms. The book brings to life different aspects of Australia’s history by discussing words included in the dictionary, and shows how these words have become part of a distinctively Australian branch of English.

The Dictionary of Lost Words
Book Review: The Dictionary of Lost Words
A fictional account of the real-life events surrounding the creation of the first Oxford English Dictionary, this book is much more than a snapshot of linguistic history.
10 June 2020 by Amanda Pepe
The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams
In 1901, the word ‘Bondmaid’ was discovered missing from the Oxford English Dictionary. This is the story of the girl who stole it.
Esme is born into a world of words. Motherless and irrepressibly curious, she spends her childhood in the ‘Scriptorium’, a garden shed in Oxford where her father and a team of dedicated lexicographers are collecting words for the very first Oxford English Dictionary. Esme’s place is beneath the sorting table, unseen and unheard. One day a slip of paper containing the word ‘bondmaid’ flutters to the floor. Esme rescues the slip and stashes it in an old wooden case that belongs to her friend, Lizzie, a young servant in the big house. Esme begins to collect other words from the Scriptorium that are misplaced, discarded or have been neglected by the dictionary men. They help her make sense of the world.
Over time, Esme realises that some words are considered more important than others, and that words and meanings relating to women’s experiences often go unrecorded. While she dedicates her life to the Oxford English Dictionary, secretly, she begins to collect words for another dictionary: The Dictionary of Lost Words.
Set when the women’s suffrage movement was at its height and the Great War loomed, The Dictionary of Lost Words reveals a lost narrative, hidden between the lines of a history written by men. It’s a delightful, lyrical and deeply thought-provoking celebration of words, and the power of language to shape the world and our experience of it. (less)
