Local Sayings? What are yours?
Posted 03 September 2008 - 01:38 AM
So I ask you this: what are some local sayings or pronunciations or language quirks from where you are from?
I'll start with two from Montreal:
-Instead of saying terrace people say "tare-ass" (tare pronounced like care")
-Any combo at a fast-food restaurant is called a trio, not combo. For some reason this bugs me!

Hon- this is with an emphasis on the O and sounds like a heavy un...something you say to anyone you see..."hey hon"
yous= I'm assuming you all
Q is pronounced like it has an r in it....crew (that one always cracks me up!)
And D.C. you just have to figure out all of the acronyms
I wanted to add that I do not talk like this, but that these are some of the sayings of the natives.
The one thing I do say that I know is wrong is pank for pink...got it from when I lived in Mississippi.

i'm from the PNW, and as far as i know, we dont say anything "weird". (ok, unless you are from somewhere that does have cool accents/sayings and thinks our are weird!) about as blah as you can get. doug and i always joke how you never hear our "accents" on movies or shows, no one thinks its interesting enough to write into a storyline. oh well! i mean really, can anyone please tell me what a "seattle accent" sounds like? B-O-R-I-N-G!
