In The Field

Journalism: G’day mate

It’s all over. There’s probably a scientific explanation for this – and it’s something I’d suggest the organizers consider before hosting another conference in Australia. WHY is the Australian accent so infectious? I’ve found myself speaking like an extra from “Neighbours” without even realizing I’m doing it. I fear I may be offending our gracious hosts here in Melbourne with my constant “G’day mate’s” and incessant upwards inflection. I think I’m being funny. Maybe I should be at the other convention…

Sorry Australia.
