    my family in arkansas always says warsh instead of wash.

    and instead of saying "on" the say "awne", i always found this annoying, as i am from the same place, and i don't talk like this.
    I always thought "warsh" was an Appalachianism.

    Here, people say "own" for "on."

    I've never really watched any of his stuff, but I guess it's possible. I'd heard people say that pre-Buffy, definitely.

    You'll hear "warsh" in a lot of places. Providence, RI (especially amongst the Italian-Americans) is another one. We also pronounce on as "awn."

    This is a very interesting topic to me:

    Some common ones in my vocabulary:

    "hock it/hocked it" - eating something really fast

    "horked it" - Same as above and I laugh every time I use it

    "jacked up" - messed up

    "fuckin A" - yeah, we use that here too sometimes

    "I ain't gotta be doin' that/goin' there..." - just crazy grammar whenever I get angry

    "grody" - gross

    "ganky" - same as above

    "true that" - agreement

    "I'm gonna lay a smackdown on you" - beat someone in an argument, used when joking about beating someone up or getting angry at them

    "yeah, OKAY"(with sarcastic tone) - yeah right; whatever

    "bobo" - for a cut or bruise; I thought this was more common but I don't know anyone else who uses it in this way. My grandma did and she's from New Orleans where it appears the word is part of the Yat dialect of the area. I hear she'd also use "lagniappe" - a little something extra - which is also from there. When they named a new road "Lagniappe" here in town, my mom and I were the only people I knew of who could pronounce it right.


    And when I'm with my friends I just use a lot of bad grammar which can lead to tons of wierd phrases...I like to add "done" in front of past participles when I'm being lazy/goofy, like "I done gone," "I done went," "I done bought."

    Yeah, there are very interesting things about it. The Delaware Valley and the Baltimore area have the only rhotic accents of major cities on the East Coast, for instance.
