Speaking Australian


Hands up who knew there was such a thing as the Australian National Dictionary Centre? I certainly didn't, but here it is, located on the ANU campus.

According to their website:
The Australian National Dictionary Centre conducts research into Australian English, and provides Oxford University Press with editorial expertise for their Australian dictionaries. It was established in 1988, and is jointly funded by The Australian National University and Oxford University Press Australia.

If you're new to Australian English, you night like to check out Aussie English for Beginners - you'd have to be a stubby short of a six-pack not to!
