Thanks to a couple of ‘diva discussions’, the differences of language in different countries came to light-Not words spoken in another ‘tongue’, but the various words with different meanings.
In Australia, we are quite proud of our ‘unique lingo’, it’s what separates us from the rest of the world, but we love sharing and teaching those not so familiar with it, and thanks to Diva Teri Dempski, I can share the Australian ‘slang’ with you! Teri has many Australian connections, and after our Queen Diva; Beverly Mahone, had raised a question on one particular word, Diva Teri supplied her with the following link:
Now there is a reason why she took us directly to the ‘R’ section, but YOU will just have to figure that out! Let’s just say, in the U.S.A, there’s a word used to show your support for another whereas ‘aussies’ would say ‘barrack’. ie: To barrack for your favourite ‘footy’ team! So have fun, and don’t say you weren’t warned!!
Thanks to our ‘aussie’ diva sister; Kathie M Thomas, for making this curious little difference known, it certainly gave way for many questions and just as many laughs!!
