I just returned from a short holiday in Australia. While I was there, I heard some Australian slang words that I would like to share.
I read in the newspaper that a man was arrested for 'driving like a hoon'. I found out later that a hoon is a ruffian or troublemaker.
The mayor of Melbourne wants to ban 'bogans' from the city. A bogan is apparently an ignorant or uncultured person. In America, we would say 'redneck'.
A schoolie is someone who goes to school. Daks are pants, and trakkie daks are tracksuit pants.
