Trashing American English - Eureka Street

Trashing American English - Eureka Street

You betcha bippy, boy! Ha ha, I love the liveliness of English and its many national variations. I'm frightened we'll lose our Aussie turns of phrase to these atrocities from USA through the mass media and contemporary literature. Yet I love jazz and most of my favourite contemporary poets are American (& Irish). Ah, the paradox ... or is it a lexical dichotomy?
