'G'day' All...The Idiom of Oz helps you unlock the mysteries of 'Aussie' slang...
...slang that has tested and spanned time, life and
geography across the land of 'Oz.'
This is an absolutely necessary
tool to understand and use 'Aussie' English. Don't be 'daft' or
fool yourself; if you're a 'foreigner' or tourist traveling to,
working at, or just generally curious about Oz...you need this
guide. After reading this, you will be able to creatively avoid the
pains, frustrations, and embarrassments that the author initially
experienced, and instead will thoroughly enjoy each and every
opportunity to connect with the folks in the 'land of plenty.'
You need to be prepared, lest you be deemed a 'drongo' by your 'mates', family, or the general public. Although the language is called 'English,' the Australian Idiom is so genuinely unique that not understanding it could lead one to points of being 'agro' and/or be labeled a 'burk' by the first 'arvo,' after being loaded down by a barrage of terms, unique phrases, and 'Aussie salutes'. While you're enjoying a day on a white sandy beach, on a 'tram', tap-dancing through the local 'arcade' or having 'tucker' (perhaps a 'meatpie floatie' or 'mixed grill') with a complimentary glass of Australian wine or 'beer', relax knowing that you will have a handy copy of this book in your 'pram', back pocket, or handbag.
The Australian English, terms, slang, and phrases are funny, raw, entertaining and (often) confusing. Author Jake Jacobs provides this authentic reference book to help you understand the language, it's history, rareness, while helping you achieve more meaningful conversations with your 'Aussie mates'.
