Kiwi Speak

this is a re-work of his earlier Kiwi phrase book and is back into print just in time as we host the local Golden shears competition! “Do you speak Nu Zilland? Justin Brown has eaves-dropped at the dinner table, the schoolyard, farm and the sport’s club to bring us an entertaining range of phrases that are hilarious – sometimes baffling New Zealandisms we use in everyday life.” Perfect as a gift for international travellers to understand our quintessential Kiwi culture. divided into categories – Classic, mum, dad, tV speak, farm, old-school, skuxx, street, sports and pub speak. Very funny and a great gift idea – some of these you may recall or have used: ‘box of fluffies’, ‘til the cows come home’, ‘tutu’, ‘munted’, ‘Waikikamukau’, ‘can’t handle the jandal’, ‘chur’ and ‘shot bro’... Possibly my favourite section would be ‘things you will never hear a self-respecting male say’ but i will leave you with a most remembered quote from the late sir Paul Holmes - ‘Those were our people today. That’s Holmes tonight.’
