“Call Nawlins, Dawlin. Tell us where yat!”
The Big Easy has made us speak lazy so we like to shorten our words here, and combine them when we can. So “New Orleans” becomes “Nawlins” and “where are you” becomes “Where yat” – a very important question we have for our customers.
Yats replace “th” with “d”. The locals know what we are talking about - when ya owda a poboy at da counta, don’t be confused when ya axed, “Dawlin, ya want dat dressed?” To translate this, check out our Yat Dictionary by clicking here to find out that an answer to this question could be “nuttinonit”.
