The Penguin Book of Australian Slang scales the heights -- and plumbs the depth -- of the Australian language. For twenty years Lenie Johansen has been tuning into and recording what Australians really say on the streets, in the pubs and to their family and mates. In this remarkable collection of classic and current colloquialisms she displays for readers all the inventiveness with words and the love of colourful expressions that have made Oz English unique. ~ "A great guide to the Oz vernacular; not just another dictionary of our slang but an immensely comprehensive collection of the words we really use when we talk to each other and the phrases we arrange them in. It establishes beyond argument what outsiders often tell us -- that the speech of the Australian is one of the richest and most creative parts of the English language." -- Stephen Murray-Smith, author of Right Words
