    Popper, pop top, doona, nikko, felt pen, port, Pluto pup, lounge, togs, thongs, scallop (cakes to me are the huge mega fatter potato and a scallop is the skinny crunchy one, Cheerio, kabana and cabanosi are 2 different meats to me?!, sand shoes, a deli is where you buy cold meats in the supermarket or if in WA a corner store

    Qld born, lived in WA, VIC and NT.. What I say depends on who I'm talking to!!

    I'm 24 we always called bags ports an port racks.. I was teased endlessly as a teen in WA over that!!!

    jumpers
    swimming cozzie
    duvet (doona)
    sofa
    i just call the the lounge room the lounge
    crisps (not chips)

    My DH is from northern England too, and he calls the lounge room 'the room'. I'm always like; "Which one???"

    He calls them poppas, pop tops, swimmers, potato scallops and toasted sandwiches.

    Oh and I say runners he says joggers
    Of course he thinks he is right but I just think its funny.
    I think I agree with your husband on everything there.

    Me too!

    Poppa
    Pop top
    Swimmers
    Joggers
    Either port or suitcase
    Hair band or bobble
    Jaffle if it's sealed, toasted sandwich if it's not
    Pluto pup
    Town show
    Lounge
    Bathroom
    Esky
    Depending on what size I'm ordering either a middie, a schooner, or a pint
    Scallops
    Undies
    Icy pole
    Stubby cooler
    Carton of beer
    Evening meal is dinner, day time meal is lunch
    A texta is for colouring in, otherwise permanent marker or white board marker
    White out
    Doona and doona cover, however I consider a quilt and duvet to be something different
    Thongs for shoes and g string for underwear.

    Here's a question - forehead or forid? (Probably spelt wrong)

    Or napkin vs serviette?

I call them poppers lol and that gave the lady on the cloth nappy place a good laugh, apparently I 'am soooo English' lol. Also cozzie instead of bathers and crisps not chips. Chips to me are hot. Donna was confusing (we call it covers or duvet) and runners (trainers). Think that's all I have trouble with at the moment lol starting to grasp it all!

    I will never be able to do dah-tah (day-ta) cause it just sounds silly to me lol and in the UK you can have a root around meaning look for something. A route (root) which is the way to go to get somewhere and a router (root-er) which is how you connect to the Internet
    I think I would giggle immaturely if someone said they were going to have a "root around" or referred to anything as a "rooter".

    I grew up playing on the 'slippery dip' at the park in a small country NSW town and had to retrain myself to say 'slide' when I moved to ACT.
    My family also called Jaffles 'brevilles' which DH finds ridiculous because that's a brand.
    My previous boss was from The UK and used to talk about 'push chairs' which would drive me nuts. It's a pram.
    My lounge is in the lounge room.
    My bed has a doona.
    I wear joggers.
    The thought of someone wearing a shoe on their backside is hilarious to me- thong=shoe.

    Growing up I said forid. Now I say forehead. I actually assumed forid was just a bogan way of saying forehead (grew up in a small country town ).
