Subject: RE: BS: more Australian words
Most interesting. Fitzroy was certainly a classy name for such a dismal place.

I suppose that today 'spoiling the Egyptians' would be written as 'despoiling the Egyptians.' My Sunday School lessons failed to mention that passage. Can't imagine why.

It's nice that there is a glossary for Phryne, but asking 'catters is so much more sociable.

John O'L, you are clearly correct that the Australian way is with an O - Salvo, metho, arvo... You mentioned Y too, but the tendency to add the Y sound is common everywhere. For example, is your belly button an innie or an outie?
