Words and meanings

Posted this on FB earlier, thought I would post it here as well.

Was having some work done one day last week that required a dump truck and a tractor. After the driver pulled his truck in and unloaded his tractor. ....He looked at me and said "Imoan pull my truck over here outta the way"
We are pretty much all familiar with:
Mammanims - Momma and thems ...Moms house
Daddynims - Daddy and thems .... Dads house
... But it got me thinking. ..words/phrases we 'use' in general discussion, usually in the south. Since folks on here travel so much we should at least be familiar with or know the definition:

Imoan - I am going to
Goata - go to the. ..."Imoan 'goata' house see you later
T'marruh - tomorrow....."Imoan goata house....catchy t'marruh"
Catchy - catch you
Catchylater - catch you later
Moanback - come on back...... mainly used when backing an RV or trailer
accompanied by erroneous hand waving

So if you share in this wisdom....Please by all means add to my list. ..I only ask that you at least define the word or share in a sentence.

Mommanem: Your family. Your parents and siblings. Mom and them. As in "Goin' up to see my mommanem"

Racheer: Your current location. Right here. "I'm racheer at Baker an' Main St. Whiryou?" or "The bottle opener goes racheer in this drawer."

Last time is was anywhere near the South ('86) I got the comment "You folks from California are quick" (said reallllly slowly with a twang-think Mountain Man from Duck Dynasty)
My mother was busting up inside. It was hard not to laugh out loud.

If I came down there I'd have so much fun trying to decipher what was being said, and I'm sure I'd be the butt of a few jokes.
Sounds like another item for the bucket list!

Surprised you didn't get;

yain't frum 'round heeya aryuh

We can dectect that 'rat away.

DH is a native New Yorker. He got it a LOT when we first moved back here to my home town.....and yeah...it's also the home of Duck Dynasty.

And for the record, Mountain Man lays it on thick for the show. He has a radio (talk show) on one of the local stations. Commercial breaks hit after every two sentences he speaks. /snark

And speakin' of ribs, from the other thread;

My ex is from Deeeelight, Arkansas...home of Glen Campbell

That's backwoods "backerds" I'm tellin' ya.

Went in to a restaurant one time and he ordered Prime Rib.

wait for it.....

He was PO'D big time when it arrived. He thought he was getting some REALLY GOOD, REALLY FINE! BBQ Ribs!

I wanted to dig a hole and crawl in it, or better yet just dig a tunnel all the way out to our vehicle so I could leave without being seen.

Disclaimer; Please note the adjective EX.
