Running several words into one is an Australian way of talking.

Jafta? - Do you have to?

Dingo - Didn't go.

Yungry? Are you hungry?

As an Australian I have to be very careful when traveling overseas when speaking to locals. We met a German woman in Heidleburg who spoke perfect English but she said she had trouble understanding us.
