Price: $2.99
An explanation of colloquialisms (slang) in common usage in Australia. Australian spoken English can be very different from English spoken in other countries..., even countries in which English is the first language. This comprehensive guide is written by an educator who has worked for many years with International Post-Graduate students for whom English was their second language, and Australian English was their third. Hundreds of slang terms are explained in addition to the context in which many are used. As an example, the word "bastard" to many speakers of the English language would be an offensive term. In Australia it is very often used as a term of affection by people who are "good mates". The slang terms are grouped in categories in alphabetical order to enable them to be found easily. "Heaps" of useful information on Australian English. The text is punctuated with "Aussie photos" which have been taken by the author.
