Like "Gazinta" on the surface, a mathematical term used in division. 4 gazinta 12 tree times. But I've heard folks say "Ahdunno da gazintas uvit". Translation - "I don't know the particulars". AND, I've just come to learn "gazinta" also has "other" meanings. How things connect as in the plug, and as a euphemism for...“Hey, baby. Come on over tonight and we’ll play some gazinta.” Who knew?

And "Bowchyins", meaning both of you. Hey, bowchyins go'n dahn da SLACKS-N-NAT?

And "Choobinuptoo" meaning "What have you been up to." "Cupple Tree" - Two or three.

"Hainapposa" - Shouldn't (ain't supposed to). Yinz hainapposa be aht, yinzer sick.

Injury = nicked up, banged up.

Shrub/bush with prickley spines and/or leaves = Jagger bush.

"I got all banged up when he pushed me into dat jagger bush."

Another one is the use of the word igonrant. (ig-nurnt)

"Don't be ignorant." or "That was ignorant."
