    Living down South, but raised by Northern parents, I've heard some interesting ones from friends and their families.

    "jamby" = someone who is out of place with the rest of the crowd; they may be oblivious, or they may be trying too hard

    "Bogartin" = hogging something all to yourself
    Example: Quit Bogartin the good seats!

    "geetar" = guitar

    "git-fiddle" = also guitar, I think this one's hilarious

    My friend's dad once called the Golden Corral restaurant the "Golden Kee-ral"

    "boah" = boy

    "oal" = oil

    "bowl" = boil

    "sumbitch" = son of a bitch
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Lol, I'm gonna use that. I have a wierd family like that too. It's half-southern half-northern. My dad's from Indiana and living down here he's somehow picked up this accent that we KNOW he didn't have before, and it's hilarious. My mom has a fairly strong southern accent because she lived in Birmingham, Alabama for a while, but her mom is from New Orleans and her dad is from Minnesota, so sometimes the strangest sound combinations come out of her mouth.

    I just remembered, my dad's people in Indiana say "crick" for "creek."

    "cracked up" - messed up, not necessarily in reference to drugs or alcohol. Kind of like "jacked up," really

    Also, speaking of German words, "Scheisse!" got really popular in high school thanks to the German exchange students we had.

    I've rarely heard it pronounced any other way.

    My cousins do say "wooder" for water, and it has always struck me as funny. They almost go as far as to say "witter" but not quite. My brother "Brad" is called "Brally" by them also. I see "prolly" used on the net. I wonder if this is just an abbreviation, or if some people actually say it like that. I've only heard it shortened to "probbly".

    That is the classic example of the Philadelphian accent. Strange tongue here, although at least we don't have the "Mary-marry-merry" merger like many places in the Midwest. God, that sounds so awful.

    I use cockney the most, ruby murrey (curry), china plate (mate), dustbin lids (kids) but only when I'm talking to people I know will understand.

    My favourite slang is twat, don't know why but I enjoy saying it, it comes out easy. I don't feel guilty using it, so I call alot of people twats.

    Hmm. I'm a user of the word Janky.. I wonder what it is about North to south marriages?? My parents are also this way, my mother from Philly and my father from Orange, TX, which is pretty hick out there. He answers the phone saying "Yell-ow"!!

    Out in Devine though, I've heard some interesting slang, including phrases like "Boggin'" Which apparently means sex, but is more referring to the quickie less-lovely like aspects of it.. and "Your ass is sore!" for Whatever or bullshit.. or "My ass hurts" for I'm lying.

    "Mo' Bettah'" Is also pretty common..

    Cimarron, when I was a kid we vacationed in Arkansas and I was at a teen center where I met some of da boyz from TX. I was in conversation with one and asked him something about oil wells and he yelled to his buddies to come over.

    "Now say what you just said again." he requested.

    "Do you live near any oil wells?"

    Everybody started to laugh. What?

    I say "ahnt" Mable and my cousins from Chicago say "ant" Mable.

    Where I grew up everyone says, "Uffdah." Norwegian for "good grief" or maybe even a stronger expletive. Don't know if it's slang or not. I still use it.

    My Iowa farm wife MIL uses the word "jitney" for an old beat-up car.

    That seems odd to me. The only other time I've heard this word used is by Black people to refer to a cab.

    Lol!! LAME!! Who uses Oyl?!!

    >.o Actually, I say oil, creek, and such like this, but I mispronounce other things and get made fun of for it by my fellow Texans. I tend to say "Asshoe" instead of "Asshole.".. I don't pronounce the L so well when saying it quickly. and I do say "Sawng" for song, all drawn out. My sister also says "Lahk." for Like, real southern belle twang.
