It's actually "en so" and my grandmother did this a LOT! Not heard much these days from those of us baby boomers and younger.

North of Green Bay, a poplar tree is called "popple." And you don't cut firewood, you "make firewood."

Here's the list of "other". Too long for me to copy. Some pretty funny ones in that list.

For some reason, here in south-west Ohio (Cincinnati way), we "warsh" things instead of wash - like "I'm going to warsh the RV".

Oh and by the way that is the way I say it also (I'm originally from Buffalo, NY) and a President of the USA and the Capital are both Warshington.

Y'all won't aigs and biskits for brakefas in the morning? That was my question Saturday night.

Usually the answer is yes especially in Alabama.

Hard to stop spellcheck for most of that sentence.

In Tennessee:

"Ain't nair one left" = There isn't one left. (Nair is actually spelled "nary".)

"Buggy" = shopping cart.

"Who's your people?" = What family are you a part of?

"Pore (poor) as a rattlesnake" = undernourished.


Heck, I could write a book on the stuff we say around here.

Texas : over yonder > over there
Lunch = dinner
Supper = at home
When meeting some one you know , but not seen in a while . You talk for while and leaving , make sure to "call for mama " or tell the folks I say Hi.
Here in Texas we say " yes mam and no sir , hold doors open for others , we love our mamas

Jeff fox worthy has a real good bit on " red neck"

I may as well jump in here with something about Texas. I grew up in Upstate NY and lived there until 1960 when I joined the USAF and was sent to Texas.

After basic training in San Antonio, my first duty station was in Abilene, Texas at Dyess AFB.

While living in NY, if you were giving directions to someone (or receving them) the directions would almost always be "Turn left/turn right at the next stop sign, etc." The magnetic compass direction was almost never used or given.

In Texas I soon learned that when giving directions that "North,South,East or West" was almost always used (go East 3 miles, etc). I have to admit that until I got to Texas I didn't know what direction North,South,East or West was. I soon learned.
