Default Say what?

Some of us have been having fun with dialectual differences in another thread, so I thought it would be fun to start one just for this. So if you want to join in, post and list the meanings of words or phrases that are used in your part of the world but may not be understood by "foreigners."

Here's some Texan speak:

Y'all ... a pronoun meaning you, you all, you guys or y'uns. Can be singular or plural. I hope y'all understand that. This is sometimes spelled "ya'll."

Fixin' ... getting ready to do something. For instance, I'm fixin' to eat me some supper.

Supper ... the final meal of the day. Meals here are breakfast, dinner and supper.

Coke ... soft drink or pop. The brand doesn't matter. For instance, the most popular Coke in my part of Texas is Dr. Pepper.

Kilt ... past tense of kill.

Narry ... not, as in "I don't have narry a one." Sometimes spelled "nary."

Possum ... the other white meat.

Big hat, no cattle ... all talk but no action.

This ain't my first rodeo ... I've been around awhile.

I'm in tall cotton ... things couldn't be better.

You skip lunch?

Well, I can't think of anything around here... Maybe it's because of geological location... Maybe it's because I haven't heard much different dialect...

No, we don't skip lunch. Dinner is lunch and supper is dinner. Seems clear to me! :P

So for Dinner you eat lunch...
And for Supper you eat Dinner, but because Dinner is Lunch...
So (Asuming I can put Lunch in there): Breakfast, Lunch, 'Lunch', ''Lunch''?
You sure enjoy lunch

I have to be able to understand all this stuff so I know you are being nice and not offending anyone or advertising things. Thank you all for posting in southern and midwestern. It's a lot easier for me to translate then 1337!

alright? can be used as a question - how are you today? or as a reply to this question - i'm alright thanks, how are you?

nigh - in a local town they say this after most sentences. I have no idea why. It can be amusing & annoying!

Yeah man - yes
