So you’ve traveled across the U.S. and you’re sure that no matter where you go, you can fit right in with the locals. You can put on that Texas twang or throw down a California “hella” when the situation calls for it.
But talking like the locals is a little tougher than just putting on an accent. There’s a whole lexicon that lives in each corner of the United States, and even everyday objects end up with unexpected names. Even the very food we eat can be called by vastly different names based on where you’re eating it.
Of course, a rose by any other name smells just as sweet…but it’s still nice to know what everyone’s talking about. Take our regional slang trivia quiz and find out if you’ll be able to make yourself understood across these great United States or if you’ll be left lost and confused when someone breaks out the word “hotdish.”
