Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in a fourth, revised, and greatly expanded edition, A Dictionary of Australian Colloquialisms records the ingenuity of the Australian vernacular and provides a unique insight into Australian life and culture. This well-known dictionary, first published in 1978, offers the first and the most recent colloquial coinages. Words and idioms are drawn from a wide range of historical and contemporary sources--chiefly newspapers, magazines and novels--and each entry is shown in context, with origins and derivations.

About the Author
