My computer needs looking after. I'll be back Monday or Tuesday. Please behave in the meantime.

That's right, mate. We lads o'er here talk stuff improper. Ya' know, take a booze, crack some nuts, and scream when we had our Beckham bonkers - football life. (or soccer in your country)

It's football...soccer should be taken out of the dictionary...

What sort of word is soccer anyway?

@ Adamant:

*Sigh* People are always ragging North America on the whole "soccer" thing. I wouldn't mind a change, but the words "soccer" and "football" are too heavily ingrained in everything from books to minds to successfully make the switch over a few years. I figure that the soccer players would welcome the change to join their worldwide brethren, but the football players would be against it.

For one thing, don't quote everybody as frequently as you are doing. A few more and I'll regard it as trolling, a warnable offense.

It's a mock dictionary of "Australian" words.

eg. "Emma Chizzit" = How much is it?

Sounds cute I got my accent fix last night when some Aussie on Fear Factor said both "Cheers" and "Mates".

Hey SnakeEyes, I should start pressuring YOU to talk like that.

Queenie:

Some common Londoner's phrases (not that I speak it, but...)

"Init?" = Isn't it?
"Boot it" = Kick it
"Wicked!" = Great!/Lovely!
"Lad" = Boy/Man
"Bloke" = (see above)
"Put a sock in it" = Be quiet (this is more rarely used now)

And there are other phrases which, to this day, I still haven't figured out.

Also, when trying to speak Londoners'/Cockney accents, there are times when you need to skip the T's, so, in this example:

"Put the little butter in the water bottle beside the curtain."

You'd pronounce:

"Pu' the lee'ole ba'arr in the wor'ar bor'ole beside the cur'ain." (or something very akin to that) Where all the apostrophe's are, you stop dead from the previous syllable, then start the next one from your throat. So, the "tter" in "butter" will become "arr".

We have "wicked" and "put a sock in it" too. I thought that that was a mainly NA phrase.

Well, there's my daily fun with accents

You'll never get a true strine accent, guv'.
