All that I have noticed here is that people fail to conjugate verbs properly. It's become a pet peeve and I have to stop myself from correcting people's gramatical errors on a regular basis. If I hear one more person say "He gone to the store" I swear someone will lose an eye.

Fixing to (pronounced fixin'ta')

When I lived in Nashville, there's a road called Lebanon Pike but all of the locals pronounced it Lebnun and the tourists could never figure out where Lebnun Pike was.

I'm also having a hard time thinking of phrases unique to the area. I have a feeling most unusual things I say are phrases unique to me. 8O

When I was in Georgia I used to hear "only-est". Never heard that anywhere else so I'm guessing it may be unique to Georgia. Years later I met a guy up here in NH who said it and sure enough he was from GA.
