Si-goggleing= not straight or done incorrectly.
Wirey = limber or energetic
Gaint = strong
I also hear people say klim instead of climb and squiz instead of squeeze. A lot of the others already posted are used everyday in my vocabulary or lack thereof. Lol

Technically, "yinz" is what yinzers say. I regularly go to DQ and ask for Jimmies on my ice cream cones just to mess with them. Jimmies are sprinkles in pittsburghese. Wush is used for wash. Wuff is used for wolf. Prolly is used for probably. the list is endless. I am from WV but most of my family is in southwestern PA, in which they refer to me as a hoopie or a Pennsyltuckian.

I grew up hearing this and still use it, but most often get a funny look for it.

I would be scared to go to DQ and ask for "jimmies" on my ice cream. Jimmies may be sprinkles in Pittsburg, but jimmie means something else where I'm from.
