Abstract:

You certainly can't tell an Australian by the way they look, but the minute they open their mouths, the guessing is over. The cultural DNA in this country is in the sound of the way Australians speak. But why do we speak the way we do? And what exactly is the Australian accent? This entertaining story about the way we sound is told through an array of illuminating interviews with linguists, historians, social and political commentators, comedians, actors, and plenty of opinionated people with genuinely hilarious anecdotes.
