10 Phrases That Will Make You Swear Southern Californians Have Their Own Language

If you live in SoCal, you may think that California is the only state that doesn’t have its own unique phrases, words or even an accent. Because we don’t have an accent, right!? But leave it to the rest of the country to point out that some of the phrases we use are completely foreign to other parts of the USA. Take a look to see some of the things we say that completely baffle people from outside of the state but sound completely normal to us.

How’s that for a comprehensive list of unique SoCal phrases!? If you’ve lived here long enough, you most likely have used many of these phrases and words on many occasions. Were there any surprises that you were shocked to see? Or, if there is anything we left out, please make a note in the comments as we’d love to add a few more to the list.
