is this not just proper cheese grated on some chips then smothered in gravy? :scratch:


Heck no! I'm not totally sure about the process but I think curds are basically a quickly made sour milk product, kinda like a proto cheese. They should be super fresh, made the same day, and they should squeak when you bite into them. In my youth I balked at eating something called a 'curd' but they are super tasty, mild and slightly salty. Also, it's not quite gravy- it's sometimes called 'brown sauce' and it's a bit thinner.

MA's Quebecois cohorts might be able to elaborate- the dish originates in Quebec but it's fairly widespread across the country.

Haha, hella spread to my high school in Virginia (2007-8ish) via some people who played an online game with Californians.

In Scotland, using "Ya bastard" or "Ya cunt" at the end of a sentence, or as a greeting is generally more a term of endearment than one of aggression.

Junkies are often referred to as "Jakeys" or "Jakes"

Like in the rest of the UK, being "pissed" means to be drunk, as opposed to angry, although it tends to be more akin to "pished" up here.

Also, not meaning to perpetuate stereotypes, the word "fuck" is suitable for a huge range of household applications, including as something to say between other words which don't relate to it in any way; For example "Look at that... fuckin'... big, huge fuckin' thing." [also note the sporadic tautology use, which, while not unique to Scotland, is rather prevelant]

In reference to Cigarette names, we still like to confuse Americans by referring to them as Fags.


apart from jakey's it doesn't sound very different from over here

I remember distincly the southern California people giving the northern California people a lot of shit for saying "Hella" back in the day. Where I went to school there were a lot people from both halves of the state and it was sometimes like two different languages:

"Barney" (Southern Cal) = incompetant dork,
"Brah" or "Bro-hamm" (So-Cal)= friend or buddy,
"Renee" (northern Cali)= hot chick,
"Betty" (So-cal)= hot chick,
"Cut eighty" (nor-Cal)= take off, leave, go somewhere else, split,
Four Twenty (originated in northern Cali but now widespread) = anything related to marijuana.

Never heard of "Hyphy." What is that? Keep in mind I havent lived in California for nearly 20 years.

Around here, a lot of slang is related to license plates, which sounds odd but it's like you can stereotype people by what part of the state they live in. Each county has its own letter and number. So if you call someone a "2C Driver" you are basically saying they are a crappy driver, while a "Six Beenie" (6-B county license plate) is your basic semi-literate mountain man/mountain meth mama. Calling someone a "Two O" is like saying they're a cowboy, not in a derogatory way since people up there are often the real thing, as opposed to "Five Beenies" (rich people who dress in cowboy gear and drive big trucks and look the part, but actually are usually banking or real-estate tycoons)

Poutine NEEDS cheese curds, gravy and fries. Using another kind of cheese is total blasphemy. The gravy really depends of the restaurant though, sometimes it's thinner, clearer, sometimes it's darker, etc...

This is the wiki article about our swears. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quebec_French_profanity I mainly use "crisse", "tabarnak", "calice". My grand-mother's favorite swear is "viarge", it's funny.

I watch a lot of British television because there's nothing good on in the States, and an expression that always throws me off is "Keep your pecker up." Apparently in the U.K. that's analogous to "keep your chin up" and it means to keep a positive attitude, but since in American slang "pecker" means "penis"... Well, it translates amusingly.

On a similar note, I'm fond of "bollocks" meaning "bullshit." It's just fun to say.

And people use "hella" here in Washington state.

Aye, Metantoine is right. When they just grate normal cheese on it, not only does it not taste as good but it can't even be called poutine damn it! As for french swears, the ones he said are the most prominent, but I like some of the ones you hear rarely and mostly from old people like "sacrament" and "siboire". I use "maudit" sometimes too, which means damn.

Ah, sweet, sweet gumbo. It is a stew, yes, but it's even thicker than that. It's hard to get really good gumbo around here. Anyway, you can read more about it here. It's super hearty, and has a lot of variation. It'd be perfect for a night like tonight; cold as hell and windy. It puts a fire in your belly that'll keep you going.

No, we have far worse things to say than that... Swedish cursing is lame compared to anything from another country so I usually curse in Greek when I have to!

When I first moved to northeast Ohio, I heard the word "cornhole" frequently and always assumed it was some kind of kinky sex game. Actually, cornhole is a pretty popular game around here that's usually played at family gatherings and whatnot. Two wooden boards with holes cut out in them are propped up at an angle (like a ramp) a certain distance from each other, and two teams of players basically try to toss a beanbag through the holes of the other cornhole board. I wish I could say this part of Ohio is known for something more interesting, but we aren't. And I suck at cornhole, btw.

Another local slang I grew up around was (and forgive the misspelling) "Younse guys" instead of "You guys". My grandma on my mom's side still uses it every time I see her. It must be a West Virginian thing. Its kind of weird and I don't even...

haha, Well I guess the word has multiple definitions. I have heard it used in the context you're describing. That's why I find it kind of funny that its also used in a more "innocent" manner.

Bollocks is a great word - primarily, it refers to ones testicles, just in case you didn't realise that part.

It's common worldwide actually. English lacks a second-person plural form, but many other languages have it. So it's common in immigrant communities because it's quite logical to assume that the plural of you is youse. Really common in Irish communities worldwide. Wikipedia has this to say about it:

Informal plural forms

Because you is both singular and plural, people speaking various English dialects have attempted to revive the distinction between a singular and plural you by using slang to avoid confusion between the two uses. Examples of informal plurals sometimes seen and heard are:

y'all, or you all - southern United States[1] and African American Vernacular English
you guys - U.S.,[2] particularly in the Midwest, Northeast, and West Coast; Canada, Australia. Used regardless of the genders of those referred to
you lot - UK[3]
yous(e) - Ireland,[4] Tyneside,[5] Merseyside,[6] Central Scotland[7]
youse guys - in the U.S., particularly in New York City region, Philadelphia, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan; also spelt without the E
you-uns/yinz - Western Pennsylvania, The Appalachians[citation needed]
ye/yee/yees - Ireland,[8] Tyneside[9]

Although these plurals are used in daily speech, they are generally not considered acceptable in Standard English, nor in formal writing situations.

You is also unusual in that, being both singular and plural, it has two reflexive forms, yourself and yourselves. However, in recent years third person singular themself is sometimes seen (see singular they) in addition to the third person plural reflexive form themselves.

Anyway, sadly a lot of Australian vernacular is dying out and rarely heard outside of old people and isolated country towns. This article goes into it a bit: http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/01/ ... 48039.html

Everywhere you look your see "JERSEY STRONG" stickers, shirts etc. I find it kind of annoying usually, but after Sandy destroyed where I used to live, and a lot of my neighbors homes, I respect that saying now. Where I used to live was one of the hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. People in the area really came together to help each other, in many ways. Now the saying has an all new meaning to me.

I am aware. I keep meaning to work "The dog's bollocks" into my usual vocabulary. It's the dog's bollocks! Hehe. I have no idea why that means something is good, and my fellow Americans will give me some very odd looks, but again... Fun to say. I'm kind of a nerd for unusual words and phrases.

tinny/tinnie:
piece of tinfoil with weed in it, usually about $20 or $25
a can of beer
a small aluminium or 'tin' dinghy [boat]
also if a car or motorbike etc sounds a bit crappy or rough it sounds tinny
and if music is a bit 'high pitched' or thin it also sounds tinny

Eh? Gumbo's a soup where I'm from.

I'm from an area known as "Cajun country", so lot of slang is French. But I'm not even going to try to spell any examples...
You hardly ever see anyone under 50 who can speak it other than curse words and such. It's sort of sad *Shakes fist in anger* Goddamn globalization.

I come from a hick area, so mostly our idiosyncracies are mispronunciation rather than strange terms (e.g. crick = creek, sawl = saw, up 'ere = up there, etc.).

I do know "yin's" is fairly unique to here, though. The South has "y'all," and southwestern Pennsylvania has "yin's." It means the same thing.

Don't be the guy who makes thread after thread on conlanging forums about how Wisconsin accents are really unique and interesting.

Anyway, sadly a lot of Australian vernacular is dying out and rarely heard outside of old people and isolated country towns. This article goes into it a bit: http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/01/ ... 48039.html


I hear possie, blue, a fat, and clapped out relatively frequently. To be honest, give it 30-50 years for current folk's parents to start dying out and Australian English will probably like revolve around clever variations and usages of "cunt".

Oh, and Straya!

we definitely use these:
possie - eg a good fishing possie
blue - blunder
clapped out - rooted, fucked, broken

Straya is kind of new to me, i've never heard anyone say it here

ocker is a good one, someone back up there said it

I don't think anybody uses ocker anymore... Straya is popular in Aus at the moment. STRAYA CUNT! is the overly-enthusiastic version of "Australia, mate!"
