Description

Australian slang unites the true blue and the dinky-di and separates the cheeky little possums from the happy little Vegemites. When we use slang, we're connecting with the diggers in the villages of France ordering a vin blanc ('plonk') and the Indigenous Dharug-speakers of Sydney locating one another with a familiar cry ('within cooee'). In this attractive and educational new pictorial guide, readers will be ably led through the world of Aussie slang by the great H.G. 'battered sav' Nelson.
