More like the first syllable is pronounced like the nickname of a former Charlotte Hornets center from Georgetown. First round pick in 1992.
Zo- ology.

LOL, those are some good ones too, for tennyshoes in particular, when I worked at Lowes "chimalee" drove me nuts.

One I forgot is:
"Toboggan": head gear for cold weather, anyone I ever met from anywhere looks at me like I have a dick growing out of my face when I called a beanie or skullcap a toboggan.

Everyone where I lived always called roads "the" for instance: "if ya go down the gray road" or "I saw him on the Barr road"

My wife gets irritated with "the" and the way we say "cut on the lights" and she really gets annoye when chicken and pastries and not called chicken and dumplings.


Guy in my office is from Canada and when I call a hat a toboggan he goes nuts too. (its a sled)

Etc - ekcetera

Supposedly - supposably

miles an hour - mile an hour ("he was comin' round the corner doin' a hunnerd mile an hour")

I've never heard chicken and pastries, either.

My dad used to drive me nuts when I was a kid, saying that I had "better start being have" (behaving)

Ask a Southener to say "pin", "pan", and "pen". You may hear only one word repeated three times instead of three different words.
