The Macquarie Primary Dictionary has been fully revised for this new edition, using research undertaken for its parent, the respected Macquarie Dictionary, Australia’s own record of our language.
As a primary dictionary, it is designed specifically to develop and consolidate the language acquisition of upper primary students.

Key features of the Macquarie Primary Dictionary include:

- more than 12 400 colour headwords with definitions in clear, natural language

- new words such as cyber safety, hashtag and welcome to country

- sample phrases and sentences to show words in context

- a simple re-spelling pronunciation guide

- Other words - synonyms within dictionary entries, particularly for overused words

- Word building, Word use and Word history entries, including Indigenous language origins

- shaded colour panels within the body of the dictionary for advice on punctuation and words often confused.

- appendixes including grammar and spelling rules, Australia’s Prime Ministers, floral and faunal emblems, and other useful information
