Never heard of Cali. California is sure not south in my geography book. You must use a "revisionist" version.

If this doesn't represent the average California pothead in the '80s, nothing does! LOL
And no, we didn't actually talk like this in Malibu. Not all of us, at least!

However, when you get south of I-10, the alphabet changes. 'Th" becomes "D".

This, That, and There.......become Dis, Dat, and Dere. The is Da.

Anything that should end in "ow" becomes "eaux" or "aux".

Here's more, to help you assimilate when you visit:

Smothered seafood, Cajun stew.
Fais Do-Do (fay doh-doh)

The French term literally means to “make sleep,” but in the Cajun culture, a fais do-do is a big party where dancing and festivities last long into the night. Babies sleep in a back room so their parents don’t have to leave early.
Fifolet [fee fo lay]

According to Cajun folklore, it is a bright light seen in swamp areas that is said to misdirect or disorient those who try to follow it as a perceived point of safety.

When I moved to north cackalacky (north Carolina) from jersey, one of my co-workers told me to quit speakin northernese. I told her I would quit speaking northerners when she quit speakin southernese. The biggest difference between northernese and southernese comes from the speed at which you talk. When I first moved down here I was allowed to live in Cary which is more commonly known as the containment area for relocated Yankees. I learned the language and was then allowed to move to mebane where I apparently joined some sort of cult as I am now referred to as a mebanite.


Here in the south, a bbq involves cooking a pig. A cookout is when you cook burgers and dogs on the grill. It is a grill as a bbq refers to a smoker.

In Jersey please understand that you are not from New Jersey. You are from north Jersey or south Jersey or just Jersey.
