Australians are known for their informality and laid- back nature and this is reflected in the liberal use of colourful and amusing slang.

The True Blue Guide to Australian Slang is an A-Z journey through the words, expressions and cultural idiosyncrasies that make Australians so unique. Humorous yet comprehensive and up-to-date, the book covers everything from curses and rhyming slang to insults, sexual innuendo and euphemisms. It features classic Aussie bush slang as well as more contemporary expressions that are commonly used in the city.

The True Blue Guide to Australian Slang gives us all a new understanding and appreciation of the irreverent wit that is such a feature of the Australian language and will be indispensable for both locals and visitors.
