    A reference to post-coital tiredness, old chum! As if to emphasis that the effort of one's endeavours is on a parallel with a damn hard "shag". Technically British, not NZ.

    I used to stay - years ago - with a gang of Kiwis. What a hoot. Alot of NZ and Australian inference is in the tone of voice. Which I can't do - cause I'm Scottish.

    Edit 1: Knackered = "shagged"

    Knackered tends to work for general tiredness exhaustion. It comes from the "knacker's yard".. a place where lame horses were sent to end their days in a short sharp manner.

    My accent is quite thick (Southern England) and I'm a lazy talker so most sentences are just an amalgamation of words, minus any Ts, Hs, some Fs and basically just butchering the language. Some examples (tried my best to spell the phonetics):

    wahgwanen

    gaanome

    rubsenit


    Any guesses?

    I don't use much slang except for really conventional stuff like "cool" or retro stuff like tubular or nifty.

    Some of the slang I grew up with:
    1.^ending sentences with a preposition...it's more complicated than just bad grammar...it supposedly stems from German language constructs. I think people of German heritage are most likely to make the error. If ain't is slang, then so is leaving off the object of the preposition, by golly.
    2. -age, suffix added to random nouns....like foodage. My dad was the worst offender of that one in my household.
    3. "fer cute" or "fer sure", as in "oh, the kindergarten christmas pageant was fer cute, fer sure!"
    4. "spendy" - expensive
    5. "ish"- ew.....comes from "ishka", which comes from "ishkabibble". The 2nd and 3rd I only ever heard old people, like my grandma, say
    6. "hot dish"- casserole
    7. "brat"- bratwurst
    8. "pop"- soda
    9. "rambler"- one level house
    10. "that's different"- polite disapproval
    I don't wanna!
