Macquarie Dictionary launches new online resource
Apr 03, 2017
We have expanded our extensive online offerings to include a dictionary and thesaurus compiled specifically for students. It is recommended for students aged between 10-15 but can be used by those younger and older as well.
The Macquarie Student Dictionary provides more than just the spelling and meaning of a word. To help students develop their language skills, the Macquarie Student includes information such as advice about commonly confused words, spelling tips for tricky words, notes on how a word is used, as well as variant spellings, word histories, and more.
The Macquarie Student Thesaurus is a valuable aid to students wishing to expand their vocabularies and enrich their writing. Example sentences clearly show the different shades of meaning within a set of synonyms, and the Vocabulary Extension feature invites students to explore further if they wish.
Combined, the Macquarie Student Dictionary and Thesaurus Online include:
- more than 20,000 words and phrases
- more than 50,000 synonyms and antonyms
- regular updates with new words and definitions
- clear definitions written specifically for students
- example sentences and phrases
- usage notes
- vocabulary extension
