I thought we'd try it here.
What language, terminology or other things are "unique" to our area ... also what common mistakes to you hear that you find annoying?
I'll start with a few:
There is no S on the end of Boston Common or Boston Garden.
If an ice-cream shop is Boston-based, a concoction of milk, syrup and ice cream is a frappe (pronounced frap) not a milkshake.
A frappe, pronounced frap-pay seems to be McD's invention.
A regular coffee means coffee, cream and sugar. A regular decaf is the same thing, made with decafeinated coffee.
