Apart from a few borrowed expressions that the Yanks were good enough to share with us, Australian and American slang have almost nothing in common other than that they are written (should the need arise) using the same alphabet.

Most Australian slang is uniquely Australian, but may have had some of its origins in English slang.

Yank. Australian rhyming slang for Yank is "septic tank" which is then reduced to "sepo". This is most likely to have evolved from WW2. Whether people realise it or not, slang and rhyming slang play a big part in the Australian vernacular and many people, especially foreigners, are unaware that the "Australian" words they have learned and use are not actually a part of the English language, but are hideously modified English words further modified by the Australian accent.
