Words from the West by Maureen Brooks

Book Description

Western Australia's history, climate, its comparatively large aboriginal population, its size and its concomitant isolation from other Australian centres of population, have all contributed to the words used uniquely or more frequently in that region. Words From the West contains some 750 dictionary entries of words found in Western Australian newspapers - words related to topics as diverse as drinking, sport, strains of wheat, and lupins, mirror the diversity and colour of WA life.
