Do you know what a Vic-wit is? Have you ever had a nibble pie? Now in it's third edition, The Dinkum Dictionary, is even better than ever. This fascinating book describes the origins and usage of words ranging from 'mulga' to 'anzac', from 'furphy' to 'blue', and this edition includes even more words and terms. Butler reveals little-known facts about our ways of communicating with each other. She examines the diverse range of influences that have coloured our language, indigenous & non-indigenous, revealing the richness of Australia's culture.
