  1. Strine(ProperNoun)

    Australian English, especially the common, uneducated form.

    Etymology: From Australian, pronounced in Strine


  1. Strine

    Strine is a term coined in 1964 and subsequently used to describe a broad accent of Australian English. The term is a syncope, derived from a shortened phonetic rendition of the pronunciation of the word "Australian" in an exaggerated Broad Australian accent, drawing upon the tendency of this accent to run words together in a form of liaison. It was the subject of humorous columns published in the Sydney Morning Herald from the mid-1960s. Alastair Ardoch Morrison, under the Strine pseudonym of Afferbeck Lauder, wrote a song "With Air Chew" in 1965 followed by a series of books - Let Stalk Strine, Nose Tone Unturned, Fraffly Well Spoken and Fraffly Suite. An example from one of the books: 'Eye-level arch play devoisters ...'. In October 2009, Text Publishing Company, Melbourne, re-published all four books in an omnibus edition. The naturalist and TV presenter Steve Irwin was once referred to as the person who "talked Strine like no other contemporary personality".
