I live in Michigan - highest unemployment rate in the nation, so I think ours is "laid off".

The really official verb for Tennessee is volunteer.

But it ought to be "care to"

As in I don't care to help out, which means, I am glad to help.

Backwards. I know.

"cut off" as in I am going to cut off the lights.  No one who is local says "turn off".

" fixin' to" is well-used in North Carolina, too (as in ... I'm fixin' to go to the store.  I'm fixin' to cook supper.  I'm fixin' to whip your ass.)

"don'tcha" is another NC verb (as in ... Don'tcha love yankees who don't talk like we do?)

"ain't" is another -- NC talk for "aren't"  (as in ... Ain't you fixin' to tell me something?)

The other California ones listed above are good.  I used to live in the San Francisco Bay area and I would have to say it was "chill" as in chill out dude.  Which of course took the place of "mellow" as in DUDE! mellow out.

check-it out
Short for "look here"


sharp
an answer to: "how are you?" in place of fine thanks you say "sharp"

I "tune" you   instead of I am telling you.

How zit?  instead of How are you?

we say walk on the "pavement" instead of sidewalk

and we call a traffic light a "robot"

vans or trucks are called "bakki"

izit? instead of "is it so?"

Actually, no.  I was born and raised in Texas, never lived anywhere else.  BUT I am told all the time that I sound like a Yankee!!!    I talk really fast and I don't really have a Texas accent.
