Descrizione
The language of Queensland reflects its own distinctive history, its geography, its industries, and its cultural and social life. This book contains some five hundred words significant to Queensland. The chapters focus on various aspects of Queensland, starting with the contributions Queensland Aboriginal languages have made to Australian English, moving to the outback, to lifestyle, to work, to politics and perceptions. The heart of each chapter is a mini-dictionary, each entry having a definition and one or more illustrative quotations.
