Dave's Book Of Aussie Slang


Part guidebook, part citizenship test, part social bible, this is how to speak Strine for visitors new to the shores or natives looking to improve their expression.

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.
