Lovely Aussie

¿Cuál es el plural de 'lovely aussie'?
¿Se ofenderían mi hijo y mi nieto y los australianos si los llamo 'aussie'?
Lovely aussie significa 'adorable australiano', ¿vesrdad?
Gracias.

Aussie is capitalized. To make it plural, just add an 's'.
They won't be offended. And, yes, it means 'australiano adorable'.

PD: ¿Quiere decir que 'lovely' es neutro?
Porque 'adorable' no lo es. En efecto, en castellano decimos 'adorables australianos,
