A recent comment confused me. As usual.
Bruce Hamjangles accused me of promulgating zederisms. Despite googling the word, I had no idea what a zederism was. Turns out it's a neologism for spelling words with a 'z' (pronounced 'zed') that would be normally spelled with an 's' in standard Australian English.
Guilty as charged.
But before you pass sentence, hear this. I only did it because blogger.com insists that 's' is wrong and puts a little red squiggle under the word. A little red squiggle which I find so annoying that it's psychologically less damaging for me to just cave in and use American English's 'z' (pronounced 'zee').
Bruce Hamjangles also used the word "ġeār-dagum" which I am unable to shed any light on at this stage of my existence. Do not doubt, however, that I am devoting myriad resources to decoding this apparent keyboard face-plant.
