Australian Words

My books are written using Australian spelling, words and slang. To help readers from other countries understand here are links to several sites.

 

http://www.statsci.org/smyth/ozus.html

Australian-American dictionary. We both might speak English, but when you compare some of the words for different things, it’s almost like two separate languages.

 

http://www.fionalake.com.au/other-info/other-references/rural-words/australian-american-words

Another Australian-American dictionary because one dictionary just isn’t enough to show all the differences.

 

http://www.englisch-hilfen.de/en/words/british_australian_english.htm

Australian-British dictionary. Some of the words on this site are outdated, but a lot of the words are in current use.

 

http://www.koalanet.com.au/australian-slang.html

Australian slang and meanings. Some are outdated, but still used occasionally, particularly by older generations.
