MOTW #92 - The Australian Word Map

This web page gives you lists of regional words spoken in Australia. If you click on "Map Search" on the left you can pick a region and see the local words. The "Words A-Z" gives you the full list of words. You kill your whole day right up to beer o'clock on this page. So don't be a nong-linger, rattle your dags and get on your treddly so we can go rally jacking arseways foremost. I could yaffle on all day but I've gotta go map some stobie poles and talk to the turd mechanic.

Cooooool.... Who knew 'Stralians had regionalisms?

My favorite was the word that people from Queensland apply to people from Victoria and New South Wales: "Mexicans." 'Cause they're from South of the Border, yeah? I could have built a whole class around that, back in the day.
