Oh, i was wondering about this before, do you say candy, lollies, confectionary or sweets? We say lollies here, or candy in a mocking way.

In New Zealand we say lollies ussually, but some people say candy.
Definitely not confectionary though it is used in supermarkets.

Well... We say Lolly if we are talking about lollipops... but candy for everything else. At least I do, but some people substitute the word candy for sweets. Confections is only really used in the context of confectioners sugar... :P

Yeah my grandma says confectionary but she uses the 'proper' language all the time so maybe that's just her. xD

Ah so when you, miaka, are asking for a lollypop you would say 'lolly' for short?

i think most of the tenses in NZ and Aus are the same.. but sometimes different pronounciations.

Well, it varies, but I normally ask for a lolly if I want a lollipop. In the US (Or at least where I live) saying lolly is a really childish thing to do, because it is viewed as the simple thing to say, and therefor what little kids say.

Same here.

And 'Cookies' and 'Biscuits'

There's the British English and the American English...so confusing!

When I took a spelling test in New Zealand, I got center wrong because they spell it centre here! lol!

vapor=vapour
color= colour

lol!

Oh! Microsoft word always corrects centre when i type it like that, to center. I think there's a way to change that but i don't know how. I think your way makes more sense than centre. Cos you say cen-ter. not cen-tray. xD
I say cookies. :P only for chocolate ones though. And biccies for .. biscuits. xD
And americans say cable for pay tv. Our 'cable' networks are foxtel and austar so whatever one you have is what you say usually. but i just say cable cos it sounds cooler. xD im so un-australian.
Everyone says that a true australian likes vegemite and cricket. I think vegemite is disgusting and cricket is boring. lol! but alot of people dont like vegemite.. it's so gross. like grass mixed with mud and this deformed flavour of chocolate mixed with plastic. its blegh

Yeah... I don't like it too!

And cricket is boring too, in my opinion. I'm not really good at that. But I'm good at sprinting! [Because it's like I'm running away. LOL]

I spell it both ways. There really isn't a right or wrong...
At my camp one year, our team was the flying squirrels. We couldn't figure out if it was grey or gray... so we spelled it graey! LOL!

I write grey. I think.. in some strange way, 'grey' looks like a nice word. but if you spell it as "gray" it actually sounds dull like the colour. But grey is actually a really nice colour anyway! xD
Wow! What kinds of words does she say is the england way then?
And then people would know your authenticy if you spell the way you do in your country... *imagines*
cowboy: You're not american!
random: I am!
cowboy: you're not! i'm a top agent in ... spotting lies! Now write this ransom letter. *hands over paper and pen* "the grey dog jumped over the colourful grogon."
random: *finishes*
cowboy: You spell grey with an A and colour without the U! You must be american!
random: *phew* good thing i know how to spell!
.... its 11.45pm. i wouldn't be surprised if no one understood that. :P
