We say Doona for duvet.

Is it an Aussie thing to say  'have a good one!'  as a parting comment, or do you guys over there say it too?

Here in NI ( well, the part I'm in, anyway), we say 'minging' as well, and 'aye' for yes, and 'naw' for no.  If you want a sarcastic no, as in:

'Have you left the door open?' when you obviously have, you can say:

'Naw, hi!'

People here often say, as a space-filler 'aw, what, hi!'  Nobody knows what it means.

'Raging' means angry.  This can be used as in 'Ha, feel the rage, hi!'

Does anyone else say 'You fry my head' for someone who is annoying?

Anyone else ever been called a 'Gimp'? 'Spoon'? 'Eejit'?

To answer your question Mary - no, no and no!

But we tend to say 'Nuh' for No

'howzit goin' ?' for How are you?

and 'f***wit' is a popular insult.

Wow.  I love it.

Being that I am here in the US (Florida) I doubt any of this is original...

ie:

"Dude" can be "Sir, Madam, Hello, or I'm surprised."
"Totally" = I agree
"Y'all"  =  all of you
"Sammich" or "Sammy"= a sandwich
"Do me a solid" - Help me
"Can I bum a square" -  May I have a cigarette

Some are with me and my husband.

"Telebuddy" - stomach (ie: My tellybuddy is bloated after that sub)

"Cornelle"  - a guy who keeps your stuff
"Boo" - Honey


Some just amongst friends like
"Shaggy"..meaning woefully low..created from Shaggy from Scooby Doo.  As in "I had gum on my shoe and I felt so "shaggy".

But my favorite is Jeff Foxworthy's
"Euphoria"  = Hey are you four of you going to ride in the same pickup truck?


And for Fl the ever popular "Fer Sure".

In California it might be "Fer Sure, Dude."
But here it's "For Sure...y'all."

That American 'y'all' expression reminds me of what we say:

Instead of the plural 'you', we Aussies say 'youse' or just 'yus' to refer to a group of people, as in "Are youse coming? " or "When are yus leaving?"

Like you Brits we say 'mate' a lot - even to non-mates - as in "Howzit goin' mate?" to a stranger, meaning "Are you well this evening my fine fellow?"

'Durrie' or 'f*g' means cigarette, as in: "Can I bum a f*g of yus mate?"

Some rude ones for yus all:

In Oz, 'fanny' refers to a woman's private parts, NOT the backside as in the United States.

'Root' refers to the act of fornication, NOT only the underground portion of a plant, or to support a team!

'Poofter' is a male homosexual.

'Sheila' means a person of the female population, and yobbo males are commonly heard at Footy games and the like yelling: "Move your arse poofter - you run like a bloody sheila!!!"
