AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When did the word bogan replace its older counterparts such as ocker and larrikin? What does it mean to be un-Australian and why is the definition of this word so slippery? And why are typographical errors - or typos - so much fun to see in someone else's writing but not in our own? Susan Butler, editor of the Macquarie Dictionary, ponders these questions in the extracts below from her book The Aitch Factor: Adventures in Australian English.' (Publication summary)
