We've had a bit of Welsh, so how about some dinkum Aussie speak? Now, this list is not conclusive as many Aussie terms are very dependent upon the inflexion and direction in which they are used - e.g. 'bastard' is the most confusing, 'cos "You bastard!" can be an abusive term or a term of endearment dependent uopn how its used and towards whom. Rozza's, Pommies, and the Tax Department are always "Bastards!" and that's no joke. LOL!
