Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Written by a Sydney native, English, The Aussie Way: A Fun Guide to Australia’s Colourful Phrases, Words, and Expressions offers an amusing way for English or non-English speakers around the world to learn the colloquial phrases for which Australia is famous. This user-friendly reference provides words/phrases and meanings/synonyms by using an example sentence. Says the author, “For seven years I housed international students who were attending English language schools in Sydney, and I realised that although they had a good grasp of formal grammar, they struggled to understand not only colloquial English, but many of the commonly used phrasal verbs, which could not be found in a standard English/Spanish, French, etc., dictionary. It was then that I decided to start writing some of them down for future reference and it grew from there.”

Download ESL Conversation Dialogues Scripts 21-30 Volume 3: Australian English Aussie Lingo. Bonus Glossary: 200+ Aussie Expressions PDF Format Full Free by Jason Hogan and published by Maldek House. This book was released on with total page 20 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: ESL Conversation Dialogues Scripts 21-30 contains dialogues featuring Australian English expressions, with a number of common expressions thrown in to challenge the student. While intermediate level and above is recommended, these dialogues can also be used to challenge beginners into improving their reading and pronunciation skills. The 10 dialogues in volume 3 feature over 200 Aussie English expressions which can give students planning to go to Australia, or those who have recently arrived, a quick crash course on common Aussie Lingo. This volume also features a bonus glossary with a brief explanation of what the Australian English words, phrases and idioms mean. Normally a glossary is not included as most native English speakers from Australia would know the meanings of the expressions used in the dialogues in the series, and would be able to explain them to students, but in an effort to help people to understand Australian English, even those native English speaking tutors and teachers who are not Australian would be able to quickly understand these dialogues and be able to teach them to others, with help from the glossary. These dialogues have been tested in private tuition lessons hundreds of times and have received great feedback from students new to Australia who are struggling to understand Australians. It is recommended that tutors add to the enjoyment of the lesson by using a strong Australian accent when reading their part of the dialogue. This series of dialogues and conversations has been released to fulfil a demand in the ESL industry for more mature style conversations for use in private tuition as well as pair or group work in the adult classroom. These have been reformatted for use on an ebook device, so users can practice reading the dialogues out loud and discuss the language used with their tutor or with each other. These eBooks contain just dialogues. It is up to the tutor to create their own lessons around these dialogues. For ESL tutors, the ideas are endless. As a tutor I've always found dialogues to be useful in vocabulary acquisition, pronunciation practice, confidence building, and more besides. Students regularly comment on how useful the dialogues are and always request more, which is why there are more sets of dialogues due out soon. I wish you all the best in teaching Australian English.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The present book contains a collection of works developing new trends in theoretical and practical lexicography devoted to manifold description of lexis. All papers are divided into two main sections: Part I, Systemic and Cross-cultural Relations of Words in the Dictionary, presents analysis of cultural issues and phraseology with special reference to English dictionaries for general- and specific-purposes. The main focus is given to the principles of lexicographic presentation of non-equivalent lexis, idioms, clichés, nominations of non-verbal behaviour and proper names of people in bilingual and monolingual dictionaries. Part II, entitled Specialized Dictionaries: Traditions and Innovations, deals with peculiarities of Author Lexicography, Learners lexicography, LSP dictionaries, dictionaries of English verbs, and varieties of the English language in its synchronic and diachronic aspects. This book is based on plenary presentations of the VIIIth school on Lexicography “Synchronic and Diachronic Lexicography: A New Age of Theory and Practice” (Ivanovo State University, September 10–12, 2009) and continues the series of monographs devoted to theoretical and practical problems of modern and historical lexicography: Essays on Lexicon, Lexicography, Terminography in Russian, American and Other Cultures (2007) and Lexicography and Terminology: A Worldwide Outlook (2009) published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing.

Download Racism and Resistance among the Filipino Diaspora PDF Format Full Free by Kristine Aquino and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-09-01 with total page 144 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Filipino migrants constitute one of the largest global diasporas today. In Australia, Filipino settlement is markedly framed by the country’s on-going nation-building project that continues to racialise immigrants and delineate the possibilities and limits of belonging to the national community. This book explores the ways in which Filipino migrants in Australia experience, understand and negotiate racism in their everyday lives. In particular, it explores the notion of everyday anti-racism – the strategies individuals deploy to manage racism in their day to day lives. Through case studies based on extensive fieldwork the author shares ethnographic observation and interview material that demonstrate the ways in which Filipinos are racially constituted in Australian society and are subject to everyday racisms that criss-cross different modes of power and domination. Drawing on theoretical approaches in critical race scholarship and the sociology of everyday life, this book illuminates the operation of racism in a multicultural society that persists insidiously in exchanges across a range of public and private spaces. More importantly, it explores the quotidian ways in which ‘victims’ of racism cope with routine racialised domination, an area underdeveloped in anti-racism research that has tended to focus on institutional anti-racism politics. Shedding light on a neglected corner of the global Filipino diaspora and highlighting the complexity of lived experiences in translocal and transnational social fields, this book will be of interest to academics in the field of diaspora and migration studies, the study of race and racism and ethnic minorities, with particular reference to the Asian diaspora.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For thousands of young Australians the tearful dockside farewell was a rite of passage as they boarded ships bound for London. For some the journey was an extended holiday, but for many actors, painters, musicians, writers and journalists, leaving Australia seemed to be the only path to personal and professional fulfilment. This book, first published in 2000, is a collective biography of those people who found themselves categorised as expatriates - people such as Leo McKern, Dame Joan Sutherland, Barry Tuckwell, Don Banks, Phillip Knightley, John Pilger, Peter Porter, Richard Neville, Jill Neville and 'megastars' Barry Humphries, Germaine Greer and Clive James. The book tells of choices they made about career and country, yet it is also a cultural history that traces shifts in the complex relationship between Australia and Britain, as the supposed colonial backwater began to develop its own cultural identity.

This book was released on 2015-05-30 with total page 298 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book deals with immigration processes of Germans who have arrived in Australia since 1945. It is an attempt to catch the voices of these people, to let them talk about their hopes, aspirations, achievements and disappointments. In 2010 notices were sent out all over Australia, asking ‘Germans’ (most of them Australians today) to write about their experiences, about challenges and positive happenings. The book contains 28 chapters written by German-born women and men from all walks of life, some came to Australia as children, some as adults, others talk about the lives of their immigrant parents, one person pays tribute to a partner he has lost recently, and who describes her impressions about university life in Germany and in Australia, another person looks back at twenty-three years in Australia and the fine line that divides him and the Australian people. Most, but not all, are success stories. This book also includes three chapters about organisations that provided a buffer zone for new arrivals in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s: Club Harmony of Melbourne, the Club of the Danube Swabians in Adelaide, and the SA German Club. The final chapter is an interview with a person who had to flee Nazi Germany in 1938, with Ernie Salomon.

Download Australian English Reimagined PDF Format Full Free by Louisa Willoughby and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2019-11-01 with total page 260 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Australian English is perhaps best known for its colourful slang, but the variety is much richer than slang alone. This collection provides a detailed account of Australian English by bringing together leading scholars of this English variety. These scholars provide a comprehensive overview of Australian English’s distinctive features and outline cutting-edge research into the variation and change of English in Australia. Organised thematically, this volume explores the ways in which Australian English differs from other varieties of English, as well as examining regional, social and stylistic variation within the variety. The volume first explores particular structural features where Australian English differentiates itself from other English varieties. There are chapters on phonetics and phonology, socio-phonetics, lexicon and discourse-pragmatics as these elements are core to understanding any variety of English, especially within the World Englishes paradigm. It then considers what are arguably the most salient aspects of variation within Australian English and finally focuses on historical, attitudinal and planning aspects of Australian English. This volume provides a thorough account of Australian English and its users as complex, diverse and worthy of study. Perhaps more importantly, this volume’s scholars provide a reimagining of Australian English and the paradigm through which future scholars may proceed.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cultural keywords are words around which whole discourses are organised. They are culturally revealing, difficult to translate and semantically diverse. They capture how speakers have paid attention to the worlds they live in and embody socially recognised ways of thinking and feeling. The book contributes to a global turn in cultural keyword studies by exploring keywords from discourse communities in Australia, Brazil, Hong Kong, Japan, Melanesia, Mexico and Scandinavia. Providing new case studies, the volume showcases the diversity of ways in which cultural logics form and shape discourse. The Natural Semantic Metalanguage (NSM) approach is used as a unifying framework for the studies. This approach offers an attractive methodology for doing explorative discourse analysis on emic and culturally-sensitive grounds. Cultural Keywords in Discourse will be of interest to researchers and students of semantics, pragmatics, cultural discourse studies, linguistic ethnography and intercultural communication.

Book excerpt: Sarah hadn’t wanted to come to Australia. She’s been perfectly happy with things how they were in Singapore where school was for learning, and ‘being cool’ was a non-issue. Now Dad was trying his best to make her into a ‘fair dinkum’ Aussie while Mum was determined to hang on to all the old Asian traditions. During the Festival of the Hungry Ghosts Sarah meets the ghost of Pei, a Chinese girl who was not much older than Sarah when she died. As the story unfolds, it becomes apparent that the girls share a common ancestry. Initially reluctant, Sarah helps Pei to discover the truth about events surrounding her death and the lover she believed had betrayed her. Set in contemporary Singapore and Australia, and nineteenth-century China and Australia, this sprawling tale by Sally Heinrich touches on issues of Chinese immigration to Australia from the 1800s to the present.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "This is a superb piece of scholarship. Joppke manages to cover an extraordinary range of theoretical questions and empirical findings within a very compact and readable book. He coherently synthesizes and cogently brings together an array of different literatures that have often remained separate from one another. In doing so, he provides a 'state of the art' overview and analysis of the topics of citizenship and immigration." Marc Morje Howard, Georgetown University "Citizenship and Immigration is an outstanding analysis of one of the most dramatic developments in the contemporary world, especially in Europe - namely the impact of immigration on the reconstitution of citizenship and of discussions thereof. It is essential reading for anybody interested in the contemporary scene." S. N. Eisenstadt, Van Leer Jerusalem Institute "Few scholars know the citizenship and immigration literature like Christian Joppke. In this tour de force, Joppke moves nimbly from social theory to current policy developments in Europe, North America and Australia. He paints a nuanced picture of the liberal evolution of citizenship, remaining attentive to governments' recent exclusionary moves. A must-read!" Irene Bloemraad, University of California, Berkeley This incisive book provides a succinct overview of the new academic field of citizenship and immigration, as well as presenting a fresh and original argument about changing citizenship in our contemporary human rights era. Instead of being nationally resilient or in postnational decline, citizenship in Western states has continued to evolve, converging on a liberal model of inclusive citizenship with diminished rights implications and increasingly universalistic identities. This convergence is demonstrated through a sustained comparison of developments in North America, Western Europe, and Australia. Topics covered in the book include: recent trends in nationality laws; what ethnic diversity does to social citizenship; the decline of multiculturalism yet continuing rise of antidiscrimination policies; and the new state campaigns to upgrade and re-nationalize citizenship in the post-2001 period. Sophisticated and informative, and written in a lively and accessible style, this book will appeal to upper-level students and scholars in sociology, political science, and immigration and citizenship studies.
