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.

You can get a free 30-day individual trial or contact us to subscribe for your school.

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
  • spelling tips
  • grammar and punctuation guide

You can also follow us on Instagram and Twitter for @macquarieyouth to stay up-to-date on new words, spelling tips, grammar hints and more.
