Hemingway a great mate of my and a member of the breakfast club made an Aussie cobbler for an evening snack and inspired me to teach any one who wants to learn some Aussie slang. I don't know what they call it slang as makes perfectly good sense to me but here goes.
Some basic Aussie words
Mate - Friend
Bloke - Aussie male
Shelia - Aussie female
Onya - Well done
Cuppa - A cup of tea or coffee if you prefer
Barbie - Barbecue
Drongo - a stupid, inept, awkward or embarrassing person, a dimwit or slow-witted person
Arvo - Afternoon
Happy as Larry - really happy (which is me most of the time)
Whinge - Complain all the time, "what's he whinging about now?"
Tucker - Food
Grog - Alcohol
Here is one last word that I am pretty sure is Aussie but I am not totally sure and will stand corrected if wrong.
Moggie - Cat
So there you have it some basic Aussie words if you read this far I hope you learnt something and had a bit of a laugh.
Purrs your Aussie mate
Ka - zar
