A landmark contribution to New Zealand English, The Oxford Dictionary of New Zealandisms collects distinctive New Zealand words and usages, drawn from a wide variety of domains and areas of life. Many are shown in actual use by illustrative quotations from written publications. The dictionary’s contents encompass the full range of New Zealandisms, including items both current and disused, contemporary and historical in reference, colloquial and non-colloquial in style, and borrowed and internally sourced in origin.

It is the first title to represent the entire spectrum of New Zealand English vocabulary since the publication of the late Harry Orsman’s monumental Dictionary of New Zealand English in 1997.

Book.  6611 pages.  217904 words.
