This one is for everyone who is not an Australian...or, at least, for all the Norte Americanos.
Finally, on Thursday, Kevin and I went for the movie-meal deal at - Fasta Pasta.
Now, here's the lesson.
Those words rhyme.
They rhyme with "FAST".
In Australia pasta ALWAYS rhymes with fast - not just when you are being cool and choosing the movie-meal deal before seeing "Watchmen".
More, you ask.
Fillet.... rhymes with millet.
Herbs....has an "h" sound.
Aluminum... acquires an extra "i" : al-u-min-i-um. I guess if you save up enough "r"s (Melbourne, Cairns) you can cash them in for an extra vowel.
Super = Supa; Tipper = Tippa; Oscar = Osca; you get the idea. People here, no doubt, think I'm half retarded when I have ask them to spell their dog's name: Pipper/Pippa?
