200 pages. This book takes an entertaining and informative look at Australia’s extraordinary lingo. Rather than a ‘serious’ dictionary, the book is an amusing and light-hearted collection of words and phrases relating to subjects as varied as people, places, occupations, organisations, activities, objects, food, alcohol and drinking, flora and fauna - in short, virtually all aspects of Australian life. Well, stone the crows and bugger me dead! He s won a motza at the trots! Aussie lingo has been described as colourful, inventive, humorous, down-to-earth, laconic, irreverent and distinctive. No wonder visitors and New Australians crack up pr look like stunned mullets when we start to rabbit on!Reflecting all aspects of our unique Aussie culture and lifestyle, A DINGO S BREAKFAST is an indispensable guide to Strine, covering everything from aerial ping-pong to zonked. Discover the good oil about peculiar Australianisms such as what a dingo s breakfast really is, how much bread is found in a ten-ounce sandwich and why a bloke wouldn't shout if a shark bit him. As well as an A Z of Aussie lingo, the book highlights themes such as Getting on the Piss, Great Aussie Inventions, Taking a Punt and Sports Celebrity Nicknames. Whether you re a blow-in travelling in the Outback (where crows fly backwards), heading for the surf with the grommets and waxheads or shouting a few schooeys at the footy, you ll find some choice expressions dead set! Former Pommy Anne Matthews is an author, writer and editor. Since coming Down Under more than 25 years ago, she has published 12 books and contributed to over 20 travel guides.
