How To Speak NEPA – Prep for the Scranton, PA Retro Roadside Meet-up – Heyna!

Posted on: October 7, 2010

My dear pal and Retro Roadmap Reporter Aubs forwarded this video to me so I could be prepared linguistically for the Retro Roadmap / Roadside Fans meet-up in Scranton next month. I had noticed a few of these NEPAisms* on my initial scouting of the area, but now I’ll know what they actually mean. Join me in some silly lunch-time fun and learn HEYNA!

Since I’m from Boston and we also have a distinctive accent and phrasing, I can totally relate to this. It’s wicked funny! I love regionalisms, they’re like the independently-owned local way of saying things 🙂
