By state or by area, what strange or different words and phrases are used by the locals? Where I'm from there's a practically unique language much like Smith and Tangier islands in the Chesapeake. If you're "from away" it could be tough understanding the locals. Although we moved when I was young, my folks would occasionally pop out some of these gems. Here's a few, see if you can guess what they mean. No Googleing. Put da side back in 'er. What a mausey day I'll put da ol slut on. Who knit ya? Stay where your to till I comes where your at.
