    What do you call "Australian language units"? Any Australian novel will have 'Australianisms' in it.
    Are you simply looking for a list of Australianisms and their meanings to translate?

    I mean english words of australian origin. I need to analyse them within the context and then explain their meaning.

    Too many to list. There are dictionaries of Australian English. But Ray's idea is better, if you want context.
