How's your ebb tide? Do you sign on the dotted lion? Is your tea nature Orpheus Rocker? Who is Charlie Charm Puck in 'Waltzing Matilda'? There was never any book about Australian speech like Strine or about posh British speech like Fraffly Well Spoken. Here, collected in one volume, are Afferbeck Lauder's groundbreaking studies of Australian speech, Let Stalk Strine and Nose Tone Unturned. Also included are Fraffly Well Spoken and Fraffly Suite, Lauder's guides to the strangled dialect of the English upper class. Reproduced with Al Terego's original illustrations, these classic books are full of mare chick momence. They are essential reading for air fridge Strines and new Strines alike - indeed, for anyone interested in our wire flife. Tiger look and start torgon Strine!


'If there's a funnier book than this, don't read it. You'll die laughing.' - Phillip Adams.
