It is impossible to be everywhere, see everything and speak to everyone, particularly in a country as big as Australia.

So we know that while the Macquarie Dictionary is a comprehensive account of Australian English, there will be words and phrases we have missed, pronunciations which we have not recorded.

If you have come across a word or phrase that you think should be in the dictionary, you can send it to Macquarie Dictionary for consideration.

Simply fill in this form with the details about your word or phrase and it will be included in a review of new words and definitions that is undertaken annually.

Please be sure to read the conditions before filling in the form and submitting your word.
