Default Re: Pittsburghese useage...

I've lost most of my accent now but let me just have a phone call with my sister and it's amazing how I pick it right back up without even noticing! I still use the terminology. I lived in Florida for a while when I left PA. I'll never foget the reaction I got when I asked for a gumban......I had never heard it called anything else!!!!!!!

BTW, the look at the deli counter when I asked for "chippy chopped ham" was priceless!!! And how many say "throw me down the"....dirty clothes, sweeper, etc...?????? People around here find that strange too.
