Jersey-specific words and phrases
I saw a post from Onlyinyourstate.com that highlights words you would only understand if you lived in New Jersey. Joe V and I brought up the topic on the air and, as usual, D&D listeners didn’t disappoint.
Here are some of the best Jersey-specific words and phrases called in:
twentyregularcash (All one word)
jeechyet (Which of course is Jersey for “did you eat yet”)
down the shore
saltpepperketchup (Again, all one word)
Italian hot dog
If you’re out of state and hear someone use one of those words/phrases, it immediately identifies them as a New Jerseyan. If you can think of any we missed, leave them in the comments section.
