In the area I live in there is a saying that a lot of us use and the word is, RATE. Ex: Hey, it is rate hot outside. That is exclusive to my city. I was wondering of sayings in the town,state,province,county,etc...

Originally from Sacramento, California. The word I still use is hella. I feel like an A-hole everytime I use it, oh well.
Another one I hear all the time from the guys I work with that are from Boston is wicked. I laugh every time.

Around here a lot of people says "mingha!" When surprised/annoyed. Ive been told its Italian coming from the 40% original population being Italian in Jamestown, NY. Also a lot of people say PoP and I hateeee it. I always always Always say Soda. Also theres that classic western NY accent like egg sounds like agg, milk sounds like melk. Its painful sometimes... anyone in say Southern Cali need a roomie?

Crawfish, and the first time I heard it, I was like what?!?! ya'll done lost ya'lls mind. Yeah, the locals down here call spiny lobsters crawfish. I was picturing these big boats going out and dropping hundred of traps trying to catch tiny little crawfish like we used to catch back home in muddy cricks.


*Note the ones here are much more tasty:eat:

This kind of has nothing to do with the thread, but this is what our downtown is filled with. I guess it's kind of a saying...

this was filmed in our downtown

Here we usually call them crawdads. I've heard people call them crayfish too, as well as crawfish.

Around here everyone drinks "pop" although I have family from the south where they refer to it as soda so I'm one of the very few that call pop soda.

Not sure, but it makes perfect sense.

We call soft drinks soda. You don't often hear pop in Cheeseland, unless we're dancing to Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.

We pretty much always say pop. Also "gumbands" instead of rubber bands, and lots of people around here call vacuum cleaners "sweepers." :/

I used to call it "soda" until I met my wife and we moved to Oregon. Everyone here calls it "pop" too, so I've adapted.

I've learned to call lots of sweetened drinks that you make at home "juice". Doesn't matter if it's Koolaid, Crystal light, or actual ffruit juice, I call it "juice", just like everyone does back in Hawaii. I've taught my whole family to do the same, haha.

Just so you know, both are incorrect. We Southerners call it a Coke...whether it is or not.

Couch. I think older people call it a divan (no offense to those who do lol) But my grandma always says divan then I say, it's a couch! ha

I usually just call whatever I'm wanting by its name. Coke, Dr.pepper, pepsi, sprite, etc.. But ad is right, alot of people do say coke no matter what it is.

"Da"... as in Da Bears, Da Coach (Ditka) or Da Mare (Mayor Daley)
"Tree"... as in the number 3.
"Curse of the billy goat" and "someday we'll go all the way"... something I hear right around all-star break.
"The Jewel"... code for the grocery store.
