New Zealand Dictionary Centre
The New Zealand Dictionary Centre was established in July 1997 by Victoria University of Wellington and Oxford University Press with the purposes of:
- maintaining and developing a database of New Zealand English vocabulary
- conducting research on various aspects of language in New Zealand
- compiling and publishing dictionaries and related educational materials
Its aims were to provide a focal point nationally and internationally for New Zealand lexicography.
The New Zealand Dictionary Centre was a joint venture of Victoria University of Wellington and Oxford University Press, located within the School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies
