Cossie (pronounced cozzy) = swimming costume (swimming trunks, bathers, eg. bikini or other). Whatever you wear to the beach to swim in. <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ />

It also rhymes with Aussie (pronounced Ozzy) and as you know, we are a rhyming nation with our slang eg. telephone = 'dog and bone' or 'Al Capone'. You may hear these types of things when you are over here. Usually though, we only use these saying when speaking to a friend, not a foreigner. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />
