Unusual Buildings In Australia

But whereas we say “how are you,” “how’s it going” or “what’s up,” in ‘Oz’ they say how ya going instead. When we say “good going” or “good for you,” these guys here say good on ya! We’ve all heard the Ozzie term barbie for barbecue before. But they seem to “cutesitize” a lot of other words as well: breakfast=brekkie, mosquitoes=mozzies, university=uni, arvo=afternoon. Of course, because of their ties to England a lot of the vocabulary here uses the Queens English: biscuits for cookies and chips for fries.

Also, speaking of food, rockmelon is what we call cantaloupe — I much prefer the word rockmelon anyway. I mean, what is a cantaloupe — sounds like some antelope in a can or something. Actually the cantaloupe we eat in the United States is really a muskmelon. The Cantaloupensis, the true cantaloupe, has a completely different appearance and is only grown in Europe.

Oh, and the aforementioned capsicum (red and green bell peppers)? I’ve done some research and discovered that is their actual scientific botanical name. Wow — that’s very deep of the Australians and just so far removed from their other words like brekkie.
