The Australian Pocket Oxford Dictionary (APOD) is an indispensable guide to English as it is written and spoken in Australia. First published in 1976, the APOD is Australia’s bestselling dictionary. Extensive and versatile, this dictionary is firmly established as Australia’s favourite reference in schools, homes, and offices and provides unrivalled coverage of Australian English. Featuring over 500 new words, this eighth edition of the APOD commemorates 30 years of the Australian National Dictionary Centre at the Australian National University in Canberra.

Are you ready for Australian Reading Hour 2021?
Ok, take a deep breath, and repeat after us.

“I will read or listen to an Australian book, whether written or drawn or illustrated or spoken aloud, wherever I may be, in city or bush, in the bath, in bed or up a tree, for one hour on Tuesday 14 September 2021. I will read silently or aloud, I will read by myself or in a crowd. I will read a story that matters to me.”

Great! We’d love to keep you up to date with the latest news and events.
