Words hyphenated, set solid and spaced
This section sets out words (and some phrases) that appear in ACT
legislation (current or repealed). For this section, phrases are treated
in the same way as words.
Maquarie Dictionary, but appears in the Australian Oxford
Dictionary on page 50.
If a word that appears in the Macquarie Dictionary is spelt
differently in the Australian Oxford Dictionary, this is indicated
after the word. For example, ‘(M 28) (but O 26)’ after ‘airbag’
indicates that ‘airbag’ appears in the Macquarie Dictionary on page
28 and in the Australian Oxford Dictionary on page 26, and that the
word is spelt differently in the Australian Oxford Dictionary. In
cases of inconsistency between the dictionaries, the Macquarie
Dictionary should always be followed.
The spelling in this section is followed in draft legislation and
republications. For words that are not in this section but are in the
latest edition of the Macquarie Dictionary (the 5th edition), the
spelling given in the Macquarie Dictionary (as the commonest
spelling) is followed. For words that are not in the Macquarie
Dictionary, the spelling given in the Australian Oxford Dictionary
(the 3rd edition) is followed. For this purpose spelling includes
hyphenation and writing words spaced or set solid (see the
explanation on pages xix and xxiv of the Macquarie Dictionary).
Most entries also indicate whether the word is used as an adjective,
adverb, noun, pronoun, verb or phrase. This information can be
important because some words are spelt differently as, for example,
a noun and a verb. For example, ‘clean up’ is spelt with a hyphen as
a noun and without a hyphen as a verb.
One column in this section contains hyphenated words, another
contains non-hyphenated words set solid (that is, given as a single
word without spaces), and the final column contains non-hyphenated
words that are spaced (that is, given as 2 or more words with spaces
between the words).
Not all words appear in the latest edition of the Macquarie
Dictionary or in the Australian Oxford Dictionary.
If the word appears in the latest edition of the Macquarie Dictionary
(or in the Australian Oxford Dictionary), this is indicated after the
word. The page where it appears is also given. For example,‘(M 4)’
after ‘abovementioned’ indicates that ‘abovementioned’ appears in
the Macquarie Dictionary on page 4. Similarly, ‘(O 50)’ after
‘antenuptial’ indicates that ‘antenuptial’ does not appear in the
An office practice has been established for these words. Wherever
possible, a decision has been made in accordance with the Style
Manual (6th ed), chapter 6 (Spelling and word punctuation).

Italicising foreign words and phrases
This section sets out foreign words and phrases (or words and
phrases of recent foreign origin). Foreign words and phrases should
be avoided in draft legislation. See Words and Phrases for more
information.
3
Office practice is not to italicise foreign words and phrases that are
in the latest edition of the Macquarie Dictionary. Other foreign
words and phrases are italicised.
Accordingly, you may prefer to go directly to the Macquarie
Dictionary rather than use this section.
Spelling of words with alternative spellings
This section sets out words with alternative spellings that appear in
ACT legislation.
If a word has alternative spellings, the Macquarie Dictionary usually
indicates the commonest spelling of the word (see explanations on
pages xviii, xix and xxiv of the Macquarie Dictionary). Office
practice is always to follow the commonest spelling of a word given
in the Macquarie Dictionary.
The Macquarie Dictionary treats some words as having equally
preferred spellings. This section gives the spelling of these words
that is (and is not) to be followed.
The section also gives the page(s) of the Macquarie Dictionary or
the Australian Oxford Dictionary where the word appears.

Abbreviations and contractions
and schedules and, in appropriate cases, inside brackets. Use a
provision abbreviation as the first word of a sentence cautiously. For
example, a sentence in a note should start with ‘Section 40’ rather
than ‘S 40’, which looks awkward. But a sentence in a note may
start with ‘Ch 10’ or ‘Div 10’.
Abbreviations of legislation units are always in lower-case unless
they begin a sentence (or equivalent).
Some of the abbreviations in this section are not consistent with the
Macquarie Dictionary. Office practice is not to use full stops for
some common abbreviations. (The general practice of the Macquarie
Dictionary is not to use full stops in abbreviations with capital letters
but to use them for abbreviations with lower-case letters.)
This section lists some abbreviations and contractions used in ACT
legislation.
An abbreviation is a shortened form of a word (or words) that
consists of only the initial letter, or the initial letter and other letters,
but NOT the final letter (eg s for section). A contraction is a
shortened form of a word (or words) that consists of at least the first
and last letters of the word (eg Pty for Proprietary).
The abbreviations and contractions in this section are followed in
ACT legislation.
In legislation, eg and ie are only used in notes and, in appropriate
cases, inside brackets. Abbreviations of legislation units are used in
notes, provision headings, chapters, parts, divisions, subdivisions
Words and Phrases deals with the usage of some abbreviations (for
example, eg, etc and ie).

Symbols
A listed symbol should generally be used instead of the equivalent
word (or words). For additional information about the use of
symbols, see the Commonwealth Style Manual (6th ed) pp 178–186.
This section lists only selected symbols.

Measurement
exception, the rules about measurement in the Commonwealth Style
Manual (6th ed) are followed. The names and symbols of legal units
of measurement are set out in the National Measurement
Regulations 1999 (Cwlth).
Office practice is to use the appropriate symbol when referring to a
physical quantity. If the symbol is not well known or likely to be
confused, an appropriate note is included in non-technical contexts.
Symbols are not separated from the numerical value of the relevant
physical quantity by a space (eg 10gm not 10 gm). With this
