Lonely Planet Australian Phrasebookby Sue Butler, Denise Angelo (Other)
"C'mon, Aussie c'mon!" is the catch phrase of many a sporting event Down Under. Understand them or not, the Australians speak a unique English filled with Dundee accents, quirky phrases, and fantastic vocabulary. Few are the dobbers, bludgers and two-pot screamers -- the average Aussie (o-zee) is welcoming, hospitable and full of a sense of humour. Though you might just need this book to understand the jokes.
- For every social situation, here's the language you're going to hear
- Travellers can avoid embarrassing moments and awkward misunderstandings with clear vocabulary lists
- Household names, politics, sports -- the book is full of the melee of Aussie interests
- Understand a little of the original cultures through the introductory chapters to Aboriginal and Torres Strait languages
