1.0 out of 5 stars Would be a lot better without the racist terms. 21 July 2010
I bought this book to give as a silly gift to an English friend, only to discover that the very first entry refers to 'Abo" as a term for an Indigenous Australian! And 'gin' as a term for an Indigenous woman! This book was reprinted in 2009!

That's like saying that it's fine to call someone a "Paki" in the UK. Surely someone else has written complaining about how offensive this is! I've wasted my money, as of course I can't give it away and the postage to return it will be the same price as the book. I'm writing to the publishers.

PS. If you're English and intending to travel to Australia, I wouldn't advise using the term, "abo" unless you want to be viewed as a racist idiot. If you ARE a racist idiot, please don't visit Australia, we have enough of our own already.

3.0 out of 5 stars ausrailian-english english austrailian 12 Aug 2009
Those of you who are expecting a full dictionary will be disappointed with this book. It's small, compact. It does give you some funny comparisons into the Oz lingo just don't expect a full phrase book

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book 24 Jan 2012
By Cazz01
Gave this to a friend who was moving to Australia and she loves it! Covers most common word differences and has also provided her Australian friends with a giggle as some of the words are only used in certain areas.
