Some chick was trying to convince me that "wonga" means the same thing as janky or wonky. Can anyone confirm ever hearing the word "wonga"?

Also, she had never heard of "janky"

Californian btw

"once you go black you never go back" - typical American housewife phrase.

West TN here. We have a lot of strange mashup words out this way.

Goan - going to, gonna.
"I'm goan take this up yonder-way"

Yonder-way - over there (usually walking distance, but could mean a short drive)

Awno (ah-own-oh) - I don't know.

"Went to shit and the hogs ate him" - "I have no idea where this person may be, but if I did, I probably still wouldn't tell you."

Et up - Being covered with or defined by something
"He's done got et up by them damn skeeters."
This could also mean a food item that has been finished off by someone.
"He done et up all that spaghetti. Cousin Bubba dint even get none!"

Dint - did not

Aint nary - There are none; There is no chance.
"Ain't nary a one o' y'all fit to marry my sister but me!"

> Mom, can I bring my AR-15 to school tomorrow?
> What do you mean the elevator's weight limit is 600 pounds?

>>54056011
>"Fuck my harder Eduardo"
As far as I'm aware it's a relatively common saying amongst white male and females, I'm not too sure on the meaning though. Maybe one of you could enlighten us?

This expression, meaning “diagonally opposite,” was formed from a misspelling in
CATTY-CORNER, CATER-CORNER, KITTY-CORNER
English of the French word quatre (“four”) prefixed to “corner.” Although the word has nothing to do with cats or kittens, in various dialects all three spellings are acceptable: “catty,” “cater” or “kitty.”

"ya dun goofed". I know what it stands for.. but what the fuck does it even mean

We sometimes call niggers "African Americans"
>>
>>54058511
So they're using "done" instead of "went and"? By the lack of grammar I assume it's primarily southern rednecks using it?
>>
>>54058613
it's you done goofed, rather than you have done something stupid.

You're right it's mostly a hickish thing.
>>
>>54058613
>So they're using "done" instead of "went and"?
Correct.

>By the lack of grammar I assume it's primarily southern rednecks using it?
Correct.

Snafu

>>54056011
Yuns = yous = you guys or you people.
Yall (Yes, texans do say this) = You all.
The true beauty of redneck linguistics is in the whole sentences and not single words or phrases.
