Appendix:Australian English terms for body parts
- arse – as elsewhere in English, slang for buttocks (sometimes also the anus). American English spelling of ass is also in use.
- bot – either the buttocks (an abbreviation of bottom), or to ask for an object (without any obligation to return), as in "can I bot a cigarette?". (Compare bum.)
- bum – shares both meanings of bot (see above). Can also mean someone who is lazy.
- to be lazy or unproductive, similar to bludge ("I bummed around home all day"). "A bum" is usually a lazy, unproductive and often cheap person (commonly used in the term "uni bum", i.e. a university student). Not usually a homeless person, as in the North American usage of bum, but the term "homeless bum" is gaining popularity.
