I was born, and have lived in CA my whole life. Cattywampus is pretty common here. Although I don't think I have ever seen it written before tonight. As for cussing, my Dad's version was "dagnabbit".

Western PA..

Shari-

Your Grandma must have grown up in western Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh...

That is the only place in the US where the term "Yunz" is used to mean you or you and your friends.... It is similar to You all or Y'all in the deep south, or Youse (as in "youse guys..") from the New York/New Jersey area..

I'll bet she says Dahntahn to describe going into town, has an interesting pronunciation for Shopping...

Yes, I'm interested in what you are selling the Caravel for too. I see 2 in your profile. Assuming it's one of those, which one is it?

Very close! Only about 100 miles off! She lived near Akron Ohio (very western PA) when I knew her...I think she may have lived in PA sometime as a child but she was born in Italy.

It was always alot of fun to read her letters, she wrote just like she talked. BTW, I think your spelling of "yunz" was more accurate than mine. Don't remember dahntahn (we didn't have one)...but that sounds about right, if we did.

Great! My dad grew up in Clarion up near Oil City. He went cosmopolitan when he moved out to become a pilot in 1943, but I've always enjoyed the family accents. Still have an aunt living in Tracy, CA, who sounds just like my Grandma.
