Flocking to the Northeast just to look at fall foliage will earn you the title of "leaf peeper." It isn't necessarily a compliment," but lately travel blogs and publications are taking ownership of the word and prompting people to travel to fall-centric destinations.

Freeways are most popular in Los Angeles where people can access the high-speed road at any point. It's also common for people in this region to call the freeways by name, including the word "the." For example, someone in Los Angeles might say, "You have to take the 405." In other parts of the country, it's simply called a highway.

The term "hella" started in Oakland as a shorter way to say "hell of a lot" when referring to a large amount of something. The word quickly grew in popularity and is now part of the entire West Coast vernacular.

Midwesterners may also blurt out "ope" when something silly or surprising happens. The term is meant as a replacement for "uh-oh" and "oops."

The first month of the new year has been dubbed "Januhairy," an ongoing celebration on social media encouraging women to grow out and show off their body hair. Now, women are dynamic, radiant, vibrant beings-so, naturally, Januhairy got really colorful: "Unicorn Armpit Hair"

we call em Hoagies not to be confused with grinders which are cooked
