Born and bred yankee here. I use "y'all" all the time. The one that drives me crazy around here is "yous". Example: "Yous guys ready to order sumthin?".

There isn't anything that I can really point to. Most of the regional stuff here is pronunciation.

The little stream rolling through the woods is pronounced "crick", you have a "far head" (not a forehead), you eat a samwich (no sand, I guess), you drink wooder (hopefully there are no splinters in the water), etc.

I don't know of many Northern phrases that make the people using them sound like a 4th grade drop-out.

My area should not be famous for a phrase like "Git r dun".
The real joke is that the guy who really made that phrase famous (or infamous) and made people associate it with the south is from . . .

Nebraska.

The most cringe worthy use of words and grammar I've seen are the signs at some of the parks in town that say "No dog defecation".

I should invite a bunch of people in town to show up near the signs with their dogs in diapers.
