In the media

I have always found that Australians are very happy to talk about their language. I have had many happy conversations on the things people love and hate about Australian English, through the media or in person at gatherings where I am invited to speak. It is part of the lexicographer's job to keep and ear to the ground, so I always find these exchanges interesting and useful.
