Communication is a KEY component to an effective and efficient investigation of a culture. In order to 1) understand what people are saying, 2) fit in, 3) keep your foot out of your mouth [You won’t make the mistake of telling your wife you’re looking forward to sharing a coupla sluzzas with friends after dinner because you assumed a sluzza was a mixed ice drink not unlike a blended margarita.], and 4) demonstrate respect via a willingness and excitement to learn, Yonder Journal collaborated with a team of Australian Linguists and Cultural Anthropologists to create an interactive glossary module of common expressions. Especially those which we’d be likely to hear and/or use in the context of a Normcore Bicycle Tour in the Australian In-and-Outback.

Kevin [thinking], "Hmm, I wonder if Lachlan is having any luck getting one of those crime pigs with the grappling hook. I would love one for the desk in my office." Lachlan [thinking], "This might be the saddest game I've ever seen. All these trapped stuffed pigs living their lives in a fish bowl, only to be snatched around the head by a metal claw, dropped in a chute, and taken home where they will surely be lit on fire by a sadistic older brother or sister."
You're allowed to dream kids. You are allowed.
