    Knowing how everyone speaks differently, i decided to make a thread to see how it differs from the way I or anyone else speaks. Whats your slang? Or what word(s) is commenly used in your neck of the woods.

    For example: where I'm from the northern part of New Jersey and when someone dislikes someone.
    Instead of saying-"I don't like him"
    We might say-"I dont feel him too tuff"

    Post up your slang or sayings, lets get a couple laughs here :wink:

    Well, where I live, people tend to say 'I'm made up' When they're really pleased.
    And if they're happy for someone else, they say 'I'm made up for you'.
    I've never really understood it x_x

    i visit [SIZE=-1]Cincinnati, OH once in a while and "please" is used a little oddly.

    if someone can't hear you speak they say... "Please?"
    instead of "Can you please speak up?" or "Can you please repeat that?"

    It was hard to catch on because there's no hand gesture or body language of cupping their hand to their ear...

    Bloody hell there's loads round here.

    -We have the 'made up' one like DRMARIO said, I've never really thought it was a funny saying though
    -'Eyea', 'alrite', 'tara' or just 'tra', and 'chuffed' like Rach said
    -'Later/laterz/slater/slaterz' = see you later/bye
    -'In a bit/in a bite' = see you in a little while/bye
    -'Sly/Ahlass' ["Ahh-lahh-s"] = harsh
    -'Togga' = football [soccer]
    -'Mooch/'ave off' = steal
    -Quite a few on here haven't really understood this one: 'Arsed' = bothered, e.g. can't be arsed = can't be bothered, I'm not arsed = I'm not bothered
    -Calling someone a 'shark/snake' = implying they are sneaky
    -'Talent' = good looking girls
    -'Scouting' = looking for 'talent'
    -'Scouted' = found some 'talent'
    -'Blue nose' = pathetic :p

    That'll do for now.

    I think it's an English thing as a lot of the Americans don't get it. We have bunking as well for skipping class.

    -To 'jib' = to forget about/leave something

    Wow, some of these are *terrific* :D

    Let's see, these are some Southern (US) and some PA/Pittsburgian:


    Ya'll - You All / All of You

    "Do ya'll want to go to the beach?"

    Fixin' - About to do / Preparing to do

    "I'm fixin' to clean up this room"

    Yinz/Yins - You all/ All of You (Pitt)

    An at - [and that] and other misc/ sundry activities, used as a suffix

    don - [down], as in traveling to a location, sometimes don ere'

    All three put together in an amazing bit of colloquial PA:

    "Yins going don ere' to see the Steelers an at?"

    The Wifey© is hilarious when she turns on the Pittsburgese since normally she has zero accent.

    When someone says something stupid or obvious they get a 'Neck'
    You put your hand on their neck, grab, and slide off.

    Example:

    Guy 1: Whats the largest country in Africa?
    Guy 2: I thought Africa was a country...
    Guy 1: Thats a neck
    Guy 2: *Gets necked* sob. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

    We used to do the same thing...called it "neckbone" instead of just neck. And a lot of the time we would do it when we would get someone to look at something that wasn't there.
