Did you want to teach your student's 'crumbed sausage" - which describes the male side of that?

And I should have used a smiley for the 'boobs crook' post - it was meant as a joke. Although 'leg's crook, heart is crook' all work grammatically.   A collocation problem. bfbfbfbfbf

Dander is up!  Clearly an Australian is needed: the categories call for a different characterisation.  I suggest...

Formal / Informal / Indirect

breast / tits, boobs / chest
vagina / vage / privates
vulva / pussy / privates
penis / dick / privates
testicles / balls / privates
scrotum / sack, balls / privates
buttocks / bum, backside / butt?

I doubt one need teach coarse varieties of the informal.  All the doc need for "handling" an unexpected word is, "Sorry, your what?" and the uneducated/inbred/illbred/migrant/retard will likely wave his/her claws at or around the diseased region.  The Doc may then laugh politely.  "Oh yes," she may say, "Well, don't worry, I've seen w--OH MY GOD!!!  What the-, Oh-, I-, Oh, no-, no, you'll definitely have to... a specialist, you'll have to see a specialist....  Yes, definitely."  She can use her cell phone for the internet snap shot.

I imagine "butt" has found it's way into Australian usage, and I think "nut" always was, as in "my left nut," but should any Australian be found uttering the plural, and it's with understandable horror that I attempt to write this, why, it would be the kind of linguistic imperialism our fore fathers fought so strongly against.  Does anyone remember Nobby's, a purveyor of healthful snacks, and their pleasant, family-oriented slogan, "Nibble Nobby's Nuts"?  How ribald!  How distasteful!  How low have we sunk?

No asses nor butts in Australia.  Now that I think of it, the indirect formulation for "buttocks" is "behind."

anus / arsehole / ?


"chocolate starfish"?

To bring back some decorum...

How about 'squeamish' (nauseous)

Is this in world use?

Of course there is the perennial 'I've done a hammy'
If there is footy being played, there will be hamstrings being injured.


Other than that there is far too much slang for evey manner of illness to go into it.

Except maybe chucking a sickie, which is a tradition of course  bxbxbxbxbx

Can we settle on "backdoor"?

Not in a million years, thanks LE

The collocation problem is an interesting one as some things work others don't, when both are equally grammatical.  But it was meant as a joke - just because it sounded weird.

The crumbed sausage was meant as a joke for 'Shroomy!  I had a really funny pic of her in my head teaching this to her students!!   I am definitely going to have to remember to put smilies beside things.   bibibibibi

This thread shows the Need to teach that a professional / doctor / nurse should know & use the actual formal word
But also know some of the common slang the patience will use & know.

Not sure need distinguish who may or may not use which words,
Only that most will expect proper English from a doctors & nurses mouth.
