Words Only Southerners Use

If you grew up in a household where everyone from up north is considered a Yankee, then you’ll be able to relate to these words and sayings that only us folks in the south use. I am literally laughing as I type, because all of these are oh so true! Check out some of my favorites below, and be sure to look at the whole list here from our friends at Pretty Southern.

 

  • Y’all – never ‘you guys’
  • Fixin’ To – about to do something
  • Lagniappe – a little extra
  • Buggy – as in shopping cart
  • Sweeper – not vacuum cleaner
  • Access Road – Service Road
  • Bless Your Heart – nice way of saying you are stupid
  • Pocketbook – purse
  • Po Boy – duh
  • Highway– not freeway
  • Dumber than a Box of Rocks – needs no explanation
  • Honey – used for everyone
  • Sugar – used for everyone
  • Coke – any soft drink
  • Neutral ground – not median, as in the street
