English - Usage Notes

* The term is occasionally used, mostly by non-Australians, to refer to the country of Australia (for example, “_back in Aussie_”). This usage is very rare amongst Australians, who are more likely to use the term _Oz_. Sporting chants, such as “Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!” and “Come on, Aussie, come on!”, refer to the person, rather than the country. (Perhaps confusingly, they are used when cheering the country would be appropriate).
