So my town has a word that only we use as far as I'm aware. I've been looked at with odd expressions when I use it out of town. The word is "shay". It's an expression of awe or WTF? Almost a wow with a little bit of inquisitiveness added in.

You guys have any local words that out of towners would give you a sideways look for?

"piecing" refering to making out with someone
Lady Gaga if you're out there, i don't care if you have a penis or not, i will marry you

Jewish. We use it in place of saying "That's gay man" because the gays in our city got offended. So now we say "That's Jewish man!"
Don't ask it doesn't make sense either.

Only used in Lancaster, Pennsylvania as far as I know.

It basically used when someone does something really dumb or backwards. Kinda hard to explain exactly what it means, but when you hear it used you know exactly what someone means by it.

Apparently not many places in England use the word 'pulling' for making out. I've learned this through making it seem like I was talking about someone getting laid to some UGers a while ago.

I thought it meant when you ask someone out successfully.

'Gambole' is apparently only used in Birmingham to mean a forward roll. I was shocked when I found that out.

At my highschool-
Mini black shirts= Freshmen
Gold shirts= Sophomores
White shirts= Juniors
Black Shirts= Seniors

This is used only by us on the football team, its a reference to what color practice jersey everyone has, for instance, the frosh and seniors wear black while the Sophs wear Gold and the Juniors wear white.

Ive also heard people refer to christians as "bible ****ers" too, which I thought was hilarious.

I think the word 'pulling' should be given its origional meaning back and not all these extra weird ones.

We tend to use 'appen' when we're agreeing with someone.

Say someone says 'let's go to the pub', someone else might say, 'good idea', and i'd say, 'appen'.

And of course, in most places in Wales, its gotta be 'lush' if something's really good. Thank god for dialects!

"allewiel"

when it's carnival in Limburg (south of Netherlands) there's a sort of chant in which people say "alaaf" but in my town (Beek, small town, some 15000 inhabitants) we say "allewiel"

So it's basically our version of a word that's used in the southern dialect of Limburg's dialect, so a sort of local dialect in a regional dialect in a provincial dialect in the Dutch language...


W00t, confusion

Um, I think this is pretty widespread now, but a few years ago people in my town started saying "bare" when they meant "very"

As in "You're bare beautiful innit"

What about the phrase 'Get your coat you've pulled'? Is that an extra weird one?

That kinda shows how different cultures can be. I don't think many people in the Uk would take being called a 'black-shirt' lightly.

Bare is a common one for very in London, as well as bate for obvious (from blatant)

In Bristol we say where's it to for where is it, where are you to for where are you, etc

Gert means very in Bristolian. People say lush a lot. And mind is a filler conjunction at the end of looads of sentences.

Also all verb conjugations have the 3psg s on the end, so you can say I goes to town, he goes to town, we goes to town, etc.

I've heard it used to mean that, too. Then again, half my family are from Brum originally, so that's probably why

I'm not sure if it's actually local to my town, but I've never heard "blazed" (roughly translated: pwned) used anywhere else

EDIT:
