Aparently, there is now such a thing as Australish - Australian English Slang.
The Macquarie Dictionary, Australia's National Dictionary, has an online competition for the Australish word of the year to add to their new edition. Nominations include such fabulous linguistic configurations as:
- Credit Card Tart
- Floordrobe (something Hubbie should be very familiar with)
- Arse Antlers
and my personal favorite Slummy Mummy. (For which I nominate Britney Spears.)
