"LET'S TALK STRINE"

Afferbeck Lauder

 

Back in the mid 1960's Professor Afferbeck Lauder

wrote Let Stalk Strine (Let's Talk Australian.)

It's popularity spawned a series of books and other

Strine publishings including "Nose Tone Unturned"

(No stone unturned)

 

For those too young to remember here are some Strineisms

with translations.

It's a bit of a challenge to start with, but Ear Goze:-

With air chew, with air chew

Iker nardly liver there chew,

An I dream a badger kisser snits and die.

Phoney wicked beer loan,

Jars-chewer, nonnair roan,

An we'd dreamer batter mooner pinner sky.

Yuma snow-eye Nietzsche laugh.

Cars with air chew immy arm sit snow you Strine.
