G'day mates! I hope you don't mind my intrusion down under. I'm from the states, and am writing a screenplay that involves Australian characters. In hopes of being as accurate as possible, I was wondering if Australians talk differently than Americans. In the movies, you always hear Australians using "mate" and "bloke" and such. What are some actual phrases that you use? I'd love to get just an idea of how the dialogue for this character should be. If you can shed any other light on what an Australian character should do, I'd love to hear that too. Thanks!
