In recognition of Australia Day, which is held on 26th January every year, today's word of the day is specifically an Australian word.


The literal meaning of 'battler' is someone who battles or fights, but the word is usually used to mean a person who fights against the odds or does not give up easily.

Example:  David's house was damaged by the floods but he has been working every day to clean it up and repair the damage, he is a real battler.
