Anglo / American / Australian Translator.

Postby dromia » Sun Jan 11, 2004 1:10 pm

As there have been problems on this forum due to America, Australia and Britain being three countries separated by a common language.

I have started this thread as a place where members can post problem words and terms for the explanation thereof by their author.

Er, Adam, your reference to length, is that in time or linear measurement?

Anyone know 'dreckly' meaning shortly; in awhile etc?


I came across it in a book and remembered that I hadn't heard it for years, was common long ago, (in my childhood).

Eoin,





I'm referring to both mate, at least at this time of life. :lol:;





Dreckly, is that not a variant of directly, "I'll be there dreckly (directly)"

Thanks for putting Australia up there, perhaps we do have a language of our own...maybe 'Educated Pom'?





Anyway locally (at least in NSW) there are appearing exhortatory signs telling one not to be a "Tosser", not to throw away rubbish but to put it in the bin.


I seem to remember another meaning to "tosser" ??<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :eek --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/eek.gif ALT=":eek">;
