@hingehead,
I am beginning to think I don't really speak Australian at all!

I have never nattered or chin-wagged in my life.

I have chatted, babbled, apostrophized, declared, exclaimed, talked, had a mag, persiflaged, schticked, declaimed, orated and possibly ejaculated, though.

The bit I'm wanting to quote starts at about 4:15, but, well, the whole thing's worth a view if you haven't seen it in a while.

What do guys call a 'chat'?

Suppose it depends on who and where you are! America is a big place ... Sure, some say discussion, chat, talk ( as in "honey, we have to talk"), tete-e-tete or face to face, jaw, chew the fat.... there's also a "come to Jesus"(that's a serious conversation), or a 'sit down'... I'm sure there's plenty more but that's all I can think of for right now.

Let's see ... how about it's "an intense effort by one side in a discussion to gain cooperation from the other side." It generally would have consequences or the threat of involved - like when disciplining a child or an employer to employee breaking a (minor?) company rule say. Clear as mud?

Sorry, just saw your explanation, Rock. Like it better, more succinct!

@dlowan,
Had to look it up Embarrassed , but yeah, that's pretty close.
Sometimes when it comes to kids and those who corporeally punish it comes with a "lickin'!
