Description

At last the real stories behind some of Australia's unique and best-loved words are now ready to be told. A companion volume to Bruce Moore's highly-successful Speaking Our Language, this major new work examines Australian words from two main perspectives: the histories of particular words, and the history of thematically linked words. This is a collection of words that have interesting, challenging and often disputed stories to be told about their origins. Designed to be read from beginning to end, or dipped into at any of the headwords, What's Their Story is the ideal reference for all lovers of our language.
