This dictionary is the first large-scale English dictionary especially prepared for New Zealand users. Compiled at the New Zealand Dictionary Centre in Wellington, it reflects research into New Zealand words and their use, including new words, and new uses of older words that have evolved in New Zealand. The dictionary also reflects research into international English conducted by Oxford dictionary centres worldwide.
The New Zealand Oxford Dictionary contains over 100,000 definitions, including over 12,000 New Zealand entries and a wide range of encyclopedic information.
