What Words Are Used Where in AustraliaBook - 2005
In conjunction with the Macquarie Library, ABC Online conducted a poll amongst the ABC audience - is our use of idiom, slang and euphemism the same Australia-wide? Is the word for swimming costume the same in Perth as it is in Brisbane? Is the word 'bogan' used across the nation? What are 'bingo wings' and are they called that in Hobart or in Cairns? The WordMap defines and charts the highly idiosyncratic language that Aussies love best, to discover whether we do have a common language after all.
