Let Stalk Strine

£7.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Strine is a term coined in 1964 and subsequently used to describe a broad accent of Australian English. The term is a syncope, derived from a shortened phonetic rendition of the pronunciation of the word "Australian" in an exaggerated Broad Australian accent, drawing upon the tendency of this accent to run words together in a form of liaison

Alastair Ardoch Morrison, under the Strine pseudonym of Afferbeck Lauder (a syncope for "Alphabetical Order"), is the author of this 1966 book entitled "Let Stalk Strine." An example from the book is "Letty Mare Fit" for "Let Him Have It"

In terms of condition, the book is very good with just minor signs of wear to its exterior - namely browning to its paperback cover. The previous owner's initials are written in red ink on the cover. Internally, all pages are clean and clear of any writing or markings.

A wonderful humorous and ingenious book about Australian English, it will be of interest to all linguists.
