So noun vs adjective.
I don't want to eat that my looks vego.
Vego.
The last one I want to go over is a derogatory term that you guys should definitely not use,
I repeat, not use.
Abo.
Abo is the equivalent of the "N word".
And again, I hesitate to say that, but "nigga" in Australia.
Abo is an incredibly derogatory word for Aboriginal.
Don't use it.
You'll offend pretty much everyone who hears you including white people and coloured people
alike, Indigenous Australians alike.
So, it's important for you to know what that word is because a lot of people do use it
unfortunately, but don't use it.
Don't use it.
Anyway, guys I hope you've liked this episode.
