15 Words And Phrases People In Florida Just Don’t Understand

Part of growing up a Floridian, for me anyway, was going somewhere else in the country like the Northeast or Midwest, or even a Southern state for the first time and realizing you don’t know what all these weirdos are talking about. I have a hard time thinking of any slang that’s unique to all of Florida, not just one part, like Miami or some of the northern areas, but maybe y’all (or you guys) can think of some.

In the meantime, here are some words that you’re definitely not going to hear us use.

Do you disagree with any on this list or have any others we might have forgotten? If you can think of any Florida slang, please share it!
