Publication history[edit]

The publication dates are not given in the book itself, presumably for marketing reasons.

The second edition (copyright date 1986; 32nd reprinting, 1995) has 1809 pages plus front matter and bibliography, and was published by Editora Nova Fronteira. This edition was organized by Margarida dos Anjos, Marina Baird Ferreira (Aurélio's widow), Elza Tavares Ferreira, Joaquim Campelo Marques, Stella Rodrigo Octávio Moutinho, and Giovani Mafra e Silva.

A third edition, Dicionário Aurélio Século XXI, was published in 2001.
