Word Up: a Lexicon and Guide to Communication in the 21st Century
by Mark McCrindle with Emily Wolfinger

“Mark McCrindle deserves a medal. Mapless, he’s entered the alien terrains of text-speak, web slang, Gen-Z dialect, among other domains, and returned with a guidebook should we ever lose our way.” — David Astle, columnist, cross-word compiler and co-host of SBS TV’s Letters and Numbers.

Word Up is a revealing, entertaining and sometimes confronting snapshot of Australia today—across the generations.  Word Up explains how we use and mangle our language in the classroom, the media, in politics or the pub. Let social researcher Mark McCrindle help you understand what the other gens are on about.
