by J.R.L. BernardThis is the first thesaurus ever written to be based on the distinctly Australian use of English. A work of instruction with great browsing potential, it is an indispensable aid to writing and an obvious companion to the Macquarie Dictionary. The Macquarie Thesaurus is a storehouse of the rich treasures of Australian English, produced from the highly-respected Macquarie Dictionary. Any Australian reader or writer who feels the need to find the right words for the right occasion will find the Macquarie Thesaurus invaluable. It contains a wide range of words, both general and technical, as well as many phrases and colloquialisms. Common words such as blotch and lullaby are there, but so are words of a more technical nature such as quodlibetical, algorism and cerumen. Distinctively Australian words such as digger and churinga are included, as are cabbage patcher, balls-up and flat out like a lizard drinking. The Macquarie Thesaurus is a companion to the Macquarie Dictionary. The thesaurus helps you find the word you want, the dictionary defines it.
