Prepairin' for da Ulimpics
In the event you are invited and allowed to visit Chicago (soon to be
Host City for the 2016 Olympics??), it will be necessary to understand
the tribal language which takes minor liberties with the King's English.
1. Grachki (grach'-key): Chicagoese for "garage key" as in, "Yo,Theresa, waja do wit da grachki? Howmy supposta cut da grass if I can't git intada grach?"
2. Sammich: Chicagoese for sandwich. When made with sausage, it's a sassage sammich; when made with shredded beef, it's an Italian Beef
sammich, a local delicacy consisting of piles of spicy meat in a perilously soggy bun.
3. Da: This article is a key part of Chicago speech, as in "Da Bears" or "Da Mare" (the latter denoting Richard M. Daley, or Richie, as he's often called).
4. Jewels: Not family heirlooms or a tender body region, but a popular name for one of the region's dominant grocery store chains. "I'm goin' to Jewels to pick up some sassage."
5. Tree: The number between two and four. "We were lucky dat we only got tree inches of snow da udder night."
6. Over by dere: Translates to "over by there," a way of emphasizing a site presumed familiar to the listener. As in, "I got the sassage at Jewels down on Kedzie, over by dere."
7. KaminskiPark: The mispronounced name of the ballpark where the Chicago White Sox (da Sox) play baseball. Comiskey Park was recently renamed U.S.Cellular Field (da Cell).
8. Frunchroom: As in, "Getottada frunchroom wit dose muddy shoes." It's not the "parlor." It's not the "living room." In the land of the bungalow, it's the "frunchroom," a named derived, linguists believe,
from "front room."
9. Use: Not the verb, but the plural pronoun 'you!' "Where use goin'?"
10. Downtown: Anywhere near Da Lake, south of Da Zoo (Lincoln Park Zoo) and north of Soldier Field .
11. The Lake: Lake Michigan. (What other lake is there?) It's often used by local weathermen, "cooler by Da Lake."
12. BoysTown: A section on Halsted between Belmont and Addison which is lined with gay bars both sides of the street. "Didn't I see use in BoysTown in front of da Manhole?"
13. Braht: Short for Bratwurst. "Gimme a braht wit kraut."
14. Goes: Past or present tense of the verb "say." For example, "Then he goes, 'I like this place'!"
15. Guys: Used when addressing two or more people, regardless of each individual's gender.
16. Pop: A soft drink. Don't say "soda" in this town. "Do ya wanna canna pop?"
17. Sliders : Nickname for hamburgers from White Castle, a popular midwestern burger chain. "Dose sliders I had last night gave me da shits."
18. Cuppa Too-Tree: is Chicagoese for "a couple, two, three" which really means "a few." For example, "Hey Mikey, dere any of dem beerz left in da
cooler over by dere?" "Yeh, a cuppa too-tree."
