Difference between these two words

Postby jilang » Wed Feb 14, 2007 6:44 am

Hi

I've noticed that there are two ways of saying "Australia": 澳洲 and 澳大利亚. Is there a difference in meaning or when you would use those words?

“澳洲”是“澳大利亚”的简写,和后者相比显得更时尚。


澳洲 is a shortened form of 澳大利亚,It is more fashionable than behind.
希望大家都来指出我英语中的错误,谢谢!
