Dave's Book of Aussie Slang: The Hidden Humour in a Nation's Chat
Dave’s Book of Aussie Slang: The Hidden Humour in a Nation’s Chat
Wherever you find yourself: at the kitchen table, at the bar, at work, in the bedroom, or playing sport: here are the iconic phrases and clever amorphisms to make you blend in and stand out.
Speaking proper-like in S'traya does not mean the Queen’s English. Certain words and phrases capture the heart of a place in a way that upstanding vowels and consonants just can’t. Slang in the land of Oz is a tasty sandwich of humour and metaphor; and this book will have you taking a bite. From geography to family, dating to drinking, work to play, here’s how to speak like a true native.
You’ll never be lost for words, mates or drinking partners after the first chapter, then there’s seven more to go.
