Weeding Out The Tourists Even More

Melbournians might know how to pick out a tourist from the way they say their beloved city’s name but it seems that everyone in Australia knows one sure fire way to pinpoint a tourist.

I have recently been in formed by my local Australian friends that I as much as I would like to consider myself a local I cannot earn that title until I say “Australia” correctly.  I did not even know I was saying it wrong until I payed attention to how they said it.  True to typical Australian speak they manage to drop as many consonants as possible.  When Australian says the word “Australia” it sounds like they are actually saying “Strayia.”  I will have to work on my pronunciation!
