The Penguin Book of Australian Slang scales the heights - and plumbs the depths - of the Australian language. For twenty years Lenie Johansen has been tuning in to and recording what Australians really say on the streets, in the pubs and to their family and mates. In this remarkable collection of classic and current colloquialisms she displays for readers all the inventiveness with words and the love of colourful expressions that have made Oz English unique.
