(Origin: Northern Beaches, Sydney dialect - Balgowlah Boys High)
(Pronounced: as spelt, "sma" depending on accent can often be closer to a quick/snappy "smore")
meaning, huge, of large quantity and/or quality.. impressive..
(Deriving from the word "small", again meeting with the beaches sarcasm, drops selected letters which ultimately alters the meaning to the complete opposite)
1. "Sma uggy"
(meaning, someone is very attractive. see the use of "sma", having the opposite meaning of 'small' resulting in, this case, 'largely'.. and "uggy", this dialects opposite meaning of "ugly", now meaning 'attractive/good'.. the two words combined in the above exampled statement means 'very attractive/good')
2. "Sma bum"
(means, someone has a large posterior or bum)
3. "Sma building"
(means that the aforementioned building is large in appearance and quantity)
Almost all words in this Northern Beaches dialect are often pronounced with a sudden, short, rapid burst of air, accenting the last 1 or 2 letters in the word.. "sssMA", "wwEH"
