I was having a gecko at the internet today because this morning at breakfast I heard an English expression that was entirely new to me. 'Having a dekko.'

One can suppose, having discovered this expression, that gecko is rhyming slang for dekko. But what on earth is dekko rhyming slang for? But what on earth is dekko rhyming slang for?

It turns out to be nothing of the kind.

Rest here:

When I saw in the book that "Emma chisit" means " How much is it" I said to myself let's test it.
I asked the shopkeeper Emma chisit?

And it worked!!!!! So I bought the book :)

If you think that australian people speak English you are wrong! They speak Aussie.

You need the book.
