Aussie lexicon

There are some funny expressions used here. Here's a few that spring to mind.

To flick

To send an email to someone, particularly if it’s something for comment or feedback or discussion. For example, “I’ll have a look and flick it to you”.

To oversight

To oversee (strange confusion between verb ‘to see’ and noun ‘sight’!)


An organisation that provides a membership or advocacy role for others. Known in the UK as intermediaries.
