1. List: early use of language
    early use of language thumbnail image
    Public

    This records my searches for the earliest instances in newspapers of a number of apparently Australian terms. The order is alphabetical by term and then by year, with the year of use appearing in each note. My plan is generally to offer three to five of the earliest hits that I find on any given word or phrase. (This parsimonious intention has been ignored, as in "billy", where there is a curious pattern of uptake to be observed and tested more fully.) Note that some of these selections have explanatory comments and references as well. IMPORTANT: please look at the first item, as I have now started assembling these into a rather more accessible web page, which is the first item in the list.

    This list is now almost 200 items long, and it is out of hand. I have moved the salient data into a spreadsheet, and from there, into this web page, but this list remains available here, and static. There are some 480 entries in the other version now, so it is a much more complete set, and in each case, where the entry comes from Trove (I have a few book references as well), there is a link that takes you there. With the books, I try to offer a Google Books link, but then you need to chase the right page. Good luck with that!
