I love me some Yoohoo!!!!!!
I just heard that song at the Wal Mart yesterday! I wonder if it's gonna follow me around for a while. It's funny when songs do that by coincidence.

I have to drink YooHoo only on occasion. I could literally kill an entire jug of it a day if I had the chance.

No one has brought up "yunz" (many spellings), the plural of "you" yet. Common in Pittsburgh and parts of Appalachia.

Yes, I work with a coworker and she uses that term all the time. She is from the mountains of North Carolina. So, that must be true mountain talk from them.

Yinzers!

I was not aware that "Yunz" was also prevalent in parts of the south. It can be heard in pockets of rural western NY as well. Especially Allegany and Cattaraugus counties, and perhaps Steuben to a lesser extent.

A lot of people in Louisiana use the word "stay" as a substitute for "live" as in "I work in Baton Rouge but I stay in Port Allen."

Oh wow, I say "Ga head" too. I'm from Philadelphia but am the first in my family born there - everyone else in my family (parents, siblings, grandparents, etc.) was from New York City, so it's possible I picked it up from them. Now I wonder if it's a NY thing or if Philly people do that as well.

I don't say my double t's. So Kitten comes out like ki-in, Mitten is Mi-in (not quite that bad, there's a little bit of a "t "in there). When I went away to college, I became friends with some girls from Baltimore. They used to make fun of how I said those words. I never even realized I did that. I'm pretty sure it's a Philly thing.

With double T words that end in an EN the weird TT removal/back of the throat pause is common here in NY state too. Mi-en instead of mitten.

On the flip side, in words like battery, the t's take the foreground and the E takes off! "Battry".
