A handy guide to Australian slang

Thursday, 30 March 2017, 03:48 PM by Simona Nicolosi

Need help understanding the locals? Then be sure to read our handy guide on Aussie slang.

Although Australia is an English speaking country, you have probably noticed that the locals speak a completely different form of English than any other English speaking nation on earth. You might have noted that Australians have a tendency to shorten most words, or perhaps you've come across some terms or expressions you've never heard before and felt confused. Don't feel discouraged, you’re not alone, even other native English speakers sometimes find it difficult to understand Australians.

Australian English, or the way Australians pronounce English words is called strine, and it is often characterized by making words as short as possible. Strine is said to have developed by speaking through clenched teeth to avoid flies from getting into the mouth. The best thing to do to better understand Australians is try and expose yourself to more Australian content such as Aussie TV shows, movies, books, newspapers and online material.
