      Aussies are very strange. They love to invent abbreviations. Pegue sua cuppa e descubra more:

Choccy – chocolate (Pronunciation: TCHÓ-ki)

     E.g.: Quem não love choccy?

Biccy – biscuit (Pronunciation: -ki)

      E.g.: Do you want a biccy with your cuppa?

Mozzie – mosquito (Pronunciation: -zii)

      E.g.: I hate mozzies!
