As we start our second novel in the fourth year class, I notice we are going to get into a lot more slang. Here below (taken from the English Club site) is a link to some US slang, although in the archives there are slang terms from many lands. The Irish travel Pete McCarthy once declared Australia the unchallenged capital of slang and swearing in the English speaking world. He noted that the Australian rugby team could defeat opponents "just by swearing at them!" Ouch!! ***%%% ! (expletive deleted).
