The Essential Lingo Dictionary is a warts-and-all look at the notoriously hilarious (and occasionally a little bit naughty) canon of Australian slang words and phrases, casting light on the quirky, intriguing and often bizarre Australian Aussie language. A must-have for every bookshelf!

If you have wondered why his girlfriend is a `Sheila' even though her name is Sophia, or why your colleagues in Melbourne's suburbs are said to live `beyond the black stump', then this book is for you.

The author, John Miller, has been a journalist for over thirty-five years and is passionate about Australia's history and heritage. As well as making extensive use of written references to compile this book, John interviewed Australians from all walks of life - from outback characters to school kids - to ensure he captured every nuance of Australia's unique language as it is spoken today.
