Since moving from Queensland to South Australia, I have discovered that in different states, items can be called different things. Examples:
Togs – no really uses this word in South Australia, it’s swimmers or bathers.
In Queensland, cheerios can refer to cocktail franks or cereal.
Devon in Queensland, Fritz in South Australia.
Jumper for all warm, long sleeve clothing in Queensland. In South Australia, there is a proper name for each and every variant! Wind cheater, fleece, rugby top, hoodie, etc.
And my personal favourite is how lego is pronounced ‘laygo’ in South Australia.
