Thanks Jack, that has actually worked & yes I was probably given that instruction earlier but I managed to confuse myself  ( easily done ) with all the different instructions, anyway I have finally managed to master the task so thank you for all your help & patience.

Now you have to take the advice of a wise man:


Just a word of warning, if you are anything like me, make sure that you use " your new found power " regularly, otherwise within a few months you will have forgotten how to do it.

P.S. do you really think having a little tipple reduces your ability to communicate?

I couldn't care less because you're both making me roar with laughter!
 

Well, no laughter today, Pen, we’re into the serious business of cross-cultural language translation.

Lesson 1

Les talking in Red, English translation in Black

Lesson 2

High Class Aussie Lady

Lesson 3


Message From Australia:

A Darwin fellow roaming the Red Centre with a beaut of a barbie on the ali tray of his fair dinkum ute was looking for some hard yakka because there was no sit-down money for the pokies.  But it was a daggy deal as he hit the Bundy instead and ended up chundering in the dunny.

Above Message As Reported By British Dispatches

A person named Darwin with companions the fair skinned Barbara Dinkum ute and Ali Tray were travelling through the center of China looking for some hard egg-yokes because of financial constraints and a lack of pigs.  But something went wrong after a fight with someone called Bundy in a town called Chanderin-Dunni.

Tomorrow: How to translate New Zealand speak

and then we might get back to making you laugh. >:D

Thanks Anonsi
I'll give it a whirl when I next post a link.  If Les can master it with the aid of a drink or 3 then hopefully I can manage it when stone cold sober!!

Pen, you really must try to make more of an effort to keep up.


Sorry Les I'll try a bit harder in future :laugh:
Too busy laughing at (or maybe that should say with) you & Jack to concentrate!
Bit like my reports when I was at school. Must pay more attention!

Pen, I grew up watching a TV show called " Young Talent Time ".
It was hosted by Johnny Young & as the name suggests it had kids from about 7 to 15 years old singing popular songs.
Many of the performers (Kylie & Dannie Minogue to name just a couple ) went on to have fabulous careers & are renowned world wide but the one that i fell in love with was Tina Arina.
This all leads me to an excuse to practise my new found embedding skill, hope you like the song.

G’Day Mates (especially Pen and Les)


Today: How to translate New Zealand speak

There are two issues to understanding New Zealanders when they speak to you in their local vernacular: their use of idiosyncratic language (slang); and the way they pronounce what they say.  The slang is a lot easier for Australians than many others to understand because the vast majority of the slang is the same or close to Australian usage.  The main exception is where the slang comes from the Maori Language.  The pronunciation issue is caricatured and if it exists at all any more is mainly restricted to people of a certain age.  In all countries subjected to the same American and British television, regional differences are tending to diminish.

I found a good source to teach the words.  The presenter introduces and explains 110 slang words or expressions in 5 minutes on each video.  She uses a few words I wouldn’t use in front of the Vicar, so if you are sensitive in this regard, you might want to be ready to put your fingers in your ears even if you have to extract them from elsewhere.  I think you will find them mildly amusing but more informative than rib-tickling. Also on my machine an annoying ad came up and obscured the sub-titles. A quick click on the little x box got rid of it.

NZ Slang Part 1

NZ Slang Part 2]

New Zillund Speak

These three may not be as realistic as they once were, but I think you will find them amusing.  


In the first one the first minute about Australia  is crap, it is the finish you will like.

The Algorithm for converting to New Zillund Speak



What helped me to understand New Zealand (Zillund) speak in the second and third items, was to read each item out loud:

The NZ Accent Alphabet



Some More Examples

There are a few items that were in the Alphabet.


Beard - a place to sleep                         Jumbo - pet name for someone called Jim
Beers - large savage animals found in USA woods  Ken's - Cairns
Brudge - structure spanning a stream             Kittle crusps - potato chips
Bug hut - popular recording                       Leather - foam produced from soap
Bun button - been bitten by an insect            Lift - departed
Cuds - children                                   McKennock - person who fixes cars
Day old chuck - very young poultry               Mere - Mayor
Duffy cult - not easy                            Mess Kara - eye makeup
Ear - mix of nitrogen and oxygen                 Milburn - capital of Victoria
Ear New Zulland - an extinct airline             Min - male of the species
Ear roebucks - exercise at the gym               Munner stroney - soup
Earplane - large flying machine                  Nin tin dough - computer game
Ever cardeau – avocado                           One Doze - well known computer program
Fear hear - blonde                               Peck - to fill a suitcase
Fitter cheney - type of pasta                     Pigs - for hanging out washing with
Fush - marine creatures                          Pits - domestic animals
Guess - vapour                                   Pug - large animal with a curly tail
Iggs Ecktly - Precisely                          Sucks Peck - Half a dozen beers
Inner me - enemy                                 Tin - one more than nine



Enjoy!!
