'Modern Australian Usage' Updated

Nick HudsonThose who knew the first or second editions of Modern Australian Usage (Oxford University Press), by Editors Victoria Honorary Life Member Nick Hudson, may be interested to learn that, after being out of print for nearly 15 years, the book is re-emerging in a revised and updated third edition.

The new edition has a larger and hence more readable page and type size, and a striking Allen and Unwin cover design in place of the very sober OUP one. It was published on 22 April, and will be launched at the write | edit | index conference in Canberra on 6 May.
