"Word Map" is a dictionary of regional Australian English expressions. It is compiled from a website where everyone can contribute their own version of the local argot, and although evidence was sought for each entry – that it ‘had some kind of general currency’ – before it was included, the overall effect of the book is inevitably not rigorous.
