Do you speak Nu Zild? Over 150 years we have developed our own unique take on the English language. And it s not just about fush and chups. Rather it s about the often hilarious and sometime downright baffling New Zealandisms we use in all sorts of situations, and for all types of pastimes and passions. In KIWI SPEAK, the top-selling author of CRICKET SPEAK and RUGBY SPEAK eavesdrops at the dinner table, the school yard, the farm and the sports club to bring us an entertaining dictionary of phrases and expressions. Drawn from a wide range of popular Kiwi culture, these are sayings we used to say and sayings we shouldn t say but all toast the way New Zealanders yarn.
