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.

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.

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

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 Some of the words on this site are outdated, but a lot of the words are in current use.

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 Some are outdated, but still used occasionally, particularly by older generations.
