If you like my website, and/or if you've found it useful, please consider making a small donation to my Just Giving page, which I've set up just for this purpose. To begin with I'm collecting for a charity whose work I have benefitted from myself (and continue to do so): the British Heart Foundation. It would be great to raise £100 in the first month.

If you have already donated ... Thank You!

Australian Slang

This is one of those categories that shouldn't be taken too seriously.  Australian slang – or Strine, as it's affectionately known – reflects the laid–back, irreverent Australian attitude to life in general, and I'm not sure how universal some of these terms are or how acceptable some of them might be in what passes Down Under as "polite society". (Only joking, mates.)
