  • Pecan = “Puh – CAWN”. Anyone who says “PEE – can” is clearly not from Texas.
  • Grandma = “Gram – MAW”, not “GRAM – muh”
  • Grandfather = “PAW – Paw”
  • Almost to the point of = “Fixin’ to”
  • Everyone here = “All y’all”
  • Get = “git”
  • Pen = “pin”
  • Shopping cart = “buggy”
  • Lots of stores in one place = “Thuh MAWL”
  • Any soft drink = “Coke”. Calling it “pop” or “soda” is a dead giveaway you’re not from Texas.
  • The letter after V = “Dub-ya”
  • The petroleum industry = “Thuh OLL bidness”

Can you add any Texas pronunciations or phrases I missed?
