Aussie /ˈɒzi/   

(countable noun, adjective) (informal) Usage note: This term is used by speakers of all ages.

Short for ‘Australian’. The word implies that someone or something is very Australian in character.

Example 1: It would be silly to take production away from the cheaper source in Korea, and the strong Aussie dollar won’t help the cause in them wanting to bring much production down here. (

Example 2: If you watch tennis look out that day for a big group of Aussies dressed in yellow tshirts, with funny hats and green and gold face paint. (
