Abstract:

Wars have been highly significant in the development of Australian English,
generating new words and meanings. Rather than a collection of military
slang or jargon, this monograph draws together the diverse words produced
and used by ordinary Australians at war, and examines their ongoing and
contemporary usage. The language of Australians at war reveals a great deal
about the experiences and understandings of war, and is also a fascinating
insight into Australian culture and values.
