Aussie Expression #3 Abbreviation

Halo semua. Kita berjumpa lagi di Aussie Expression dimana kita akan melanjutkan pembahasan sebelumnya tentang abbreviation. Di edisi sebelumnya kita sudah membahas kata-kata yang berakhiran –a, -ie, dan –y.

Nah, sekarang, kita akan melihat dua pola yang lain. Apa saja itu?

  1. di akhiri dengan –o

Contoh :

Abbreviation   Meaning
Ambo : Ambulance
Arvo : Afternoon
avo : Avocado
Bottle-o : Liquor shop
Devo : Devastated
Defo : Definitely
Garbo : Garbage man/ garbage truck driver
S’arvo : This afternoon
Servo : Gas station

Perhatikan contoh dalam kalimat berikut ini :

  • Are you free s’arvo? What about popping up to Bottle-o by your way to servo?
  • I was so devo! My exam was super hard.
  1. diakhiri dengan –er

Contoh :

Abbreviation   Meaning
Champer : Champagne
Heccer : Hectic
Mackers : McDonals
Sanger : Sandwich

Perhatikan contoh dalam kalimat berikut ini :

  • Wanna have some champers tonight?
  • Sorry, mate. I’m defo heccer.

Itu dia abbreviation yang sering kita jumpai di Australia. Ingat ya, kita menggunakan abbreviation dalam konteks informal saja, ok?
