    Post by PeppermintCereal on Fri Oct 15, 2010 10:05 am

    Liek the one Aster did with West Coast.

    We have a West Coast too. It's called Perth. What a nice place.
    We don't have that stereotyped accent, for those ignorant people >.>"
    lolwut we ride emus.
    The best Vegemite you can find is Vegemite. Ohyeth. Teh truuuuth.
    We do have open schools here. Because we hath lots of trees. And we have Tree. ohyeth.
    We don't eat dingoes, that is feral. Some people do eat Kangaroo, but.
    Not everyone has been to Sydney. The most of Sydney I've ever been was at the Sydney airport entrance.
    Aluminum [a-LOO-min-uhm] is aluminium [A-loo-MIN-yuhm] here
    We have Midnight Oil.

    So you guise, I wanna hear your Aussie accents :D

    For the absence of accent, it's right (because there's an Australian girl for a half of the school year, and in the beginning, I thought she was British x'D -Anyway, I'm too bad at oral...- )


    And I confess, one time I ate kangaroo meat .///."

    Dude, there are stereo-typical Australian accents here.
    Just not in cities. XD The bogans (country parts of Queensland, WA and some farmers in NT and Vic) have that accent.
    Whereas we have something more similar to an English accent in more... touristy/city-y areas.

    I eat kangaroo. It's sold like Beef and lamb, and it's really tasty, and better for the environment.

    32% of our society thinks that Multiculturalism will affect their way of life (Worst part of Australia, I swear).

    Sydney is NOT the capital, guys.
    That would be the Australian Capital Territory >:U

    We don't sound our middle/end of word r's.

    Also, our front/back yards are not inundated with snakes, nor do we ride kangaroos to school/work/etc.

    We pronounce emu as "ee-myoo", not "ee-moo".

    Wahaha, interesting stuff. I'm moving to Sydney next February so I guess I need to know more stuff 'bout Australia, serious or humorous XD

    English wasn't my first language, so I was always confused about the Aluminum/Aluminium stuff. I always use "aluminium" though.
