Los­ing the lingo

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - Front Page -

Yes, Bernard Salt, our lan­guage has been eroded by Amer­i­can us­age (“Amer­i­can booty”, Dec 1-2), yet I still feel con­fi­dent that Oz English, rich in metaphors and diminu­tives, will sur­vive the on­slaught. As lan­guage con­tin­ues to evolve, who knows which lan­guage will be the pre­dom­i­nant in­flu­ence in years to come?
