Paula: My niece went to school in PA and, being as we're both Cali born and bred, we had a great discussion about regional dialects the other night at dinner. "Yins" DID come up! I was bouncing off colloquialisms that I learned while living in the Upper Midwest.....eh? It all sounds like the soundtrack to the movie "Fargo."

Aw jeeez, Margie!

Paula,
They had 3 or 4 things for every letter of the alphabet, people, places, parks, restaurants, museums, neighborhoods, rivers, and yes, yns was one of the ones for Y! There were too many to remember all of them. I do remember there was a 100 mile long bike trail, tailgating at the stadium, and something about preserving a section of colonial road and some native american sites.

McHaggis, you can hardly speak about Pittsburgh with out YINZ.. shame that it is ..
I hear it spoken daily...

After eight years of Nuns... it will won't dare creep out of me...
Well, a lot of East Coast accents are ... unforgetable shall we say,
Philly, where I went to college... ack, vowels like a knife thru my head..
Boston, tho I love it dearly .. has a tone all its own also ...
I have been from Northern Cali to Seattle, and really did'nt notice a change in the dialect.. perhaps I was'nt listening for it ..

Three, I will have to be on the look out for that program,
The bike trail goes from Dawn Tawn all the way to a town called Confulence,,
then hooks up to the Erie Canal trail, that goes thru DC to Baltimore...
Tailgating has escalated to an art from here, it really is fun,, and folks tend to get there early , as in 3am the morning of a game. God bless them,,I think the last one may be Old Rt 51 .. Pa is just really starting to recognise all of the Native Americans that were once here, I am glad to see that thumbs_up.gif

Thank you both for your replies !
Paula

Your certainly right, Paula.....there's not much in the way of accents out here on the coast, it's more vernacular than anything....of course, I hang around a bunch of surf rats so everythings "dude!" Watta bunch of Spicolli's! (That would be the surf rat from 'Fast Times At Ridgemont High.") And of course there was the Valley Girl-speak nicely but easily ridiculed by Frank Zappa way back when.

But for the most part we're accent free, I'm thinking.....though after spending 13 years in the Upper Midwest it took me about that long to quit saying "You betcha" and things like that after I got home.

Paula,
You were probably thinking of the C&O canal trail from DC to near Baltimore. The Erie canal goes from Buffalo down to the Hudson. I've hiked a short section of the C&O years ago. It sure is pretty this time of year!

Ron,
Is there really a beach in South Africa that has 15 min tubes, or is that a surfer myth?

Hey Paula!

Finally another Steeler's fan! clap.gif

And I've had the discussion of how to spell PA-isms many a time too. Out a little farther from Three Rivers, it becomes more younse.

Ever check out the Pittsburgese website? cool.gif

Still have my 70's vintage towel from back when they were a magical team. Lately it seems to be nothing but bad luck. Gonna put it back in the cedar chest.
Feel sorry for me, I live with not only a Browns fan but a Ravens one as well.

I'm from New Scotland, Canada. Around the Antigonish area, Newtown to be precise. Any other Nova Scotians on this board? beer_mug.gif
