This is the Princess Aussie guide to Australian slang!
A bogan is someone who just kind of doesn’t
really care about their appearance, looks
like they just rolled out of bed, their hair
is not brushed, they’re wearing flip-flop
with socks. They just don’t really care.
Arvo is slang for afternoon. So, I’ll see you in
the arvo=I’ll see you in the afternoon!
A ripper is basically something that is really
awesome, so something extreme that happened.
For example if you’re surfing and you catch
a big wave,
some would say, “that was a ripper of a wave!”
Pash. Ha ha. Pash is generally used in school, in
high school, but it is basically when you
make out with someone using your tongue, it
is very passionate.
So it is called a big old pash!
Fair dinkum… Fair dinkum! It is
kinda just like “oh that’s a bummer,” “it
is what it is.” If something happens and you
get told some news,
it is pretty much fair dinkum.
