Kel Richards — The Story of Australian English **Waitlist only**

Tom Keneally Centre Reading

NB: This event is now booked out and is WAITLIST only.

The English language arrived in Australia with the first motley bunch of European settlers on 26 January 1788.

Today there is clearly a distinctive Australian regional dialect with its own place among the global family of ‘Englishes’. How did this come about? Where did the distinctive pattern, accent, and verbal inventions that make up Aussie English come from?

Author, journalist and radio personality Kel Richards tells the story of the birth, rise and triumphant progress of the colourful dingo lingo that we know today as Aussie English.
