Definition: dumplings of unleavened dough, first boiled, then they are baked or fried usually in butter with onions – traditionally stuffed with potato filling , sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese, or fruit. Commonly associated with Pittsburgh.
Example: Nobody makes a pierogi like a Pittburgher!
…At a Pittsburgh Pirates home game, we have something called the “Great Pierogi Race” where four contestants race in pierogi costumes. It is a hometown favorite.
Also, Pierogies can be found outside of Pittsburgh, they aren’t just exclusive to us. However, not everyone knows about them! Story time! My friend lives in Boston and she came down to visit for a weekend. She did not know what a pierogi was and never had one before. They don’t have them up in Boston, at least not in any places she’s gone (and she lived in the city her entire life!)
If you are a Pittsburgher, you know what that means! Time to insert a Sid Crosby picture in!
By the way, thank you all for following Pittsburghese!
As always, I am 100% open to suggestions on words and themes for this tumblr. I want yunz to have a say in what words go up! This is a tumblr made by a Pittsburgher for Pittsburghers (and anyone who loves our interesting lingo in general).
So if there’s a Pittsburghese word, phrase, name, nickname, place that yunz really want to see, send me a message! Or submit a word (Make sure to at least include a definition and an example of the word)! Of course, with submits I will always do a check on the word before posting. Or if you want a particular theme for a week (baseball nicknames, players - Places in Pittsburgh), send me a message saying so! I want to make this tumblr as fun and enjoyable for yunz as it could be!
Thanks again for all of the follows! Yunz are great!
Definition: A baseball park that stood from 1909 to 1971. It was home to the Pirates, the first home of the Steelers, and the home of the Pitt Panthers.
Example: Ah remember going to Forbes to watch some of the games.
… The Pirates won three World Series at Forbes. The Pitt Panthers had five undefeated seasons here. A ceremony is held every October 13th at the outfield wall in Oakland, where Bill Mazeroski’s famous home run ball was hit. People gather and listen to a taped broadcast of the 1960 World Series.
For alls the yinzers that grew up in da 'Burgh, or for alls yinz newcomers interested in da unique and official language of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, WELCOME!
I was born and raised in 'Picksburg' for 18 years, and even though I moved away, da Burgh and its language will always have a place in my heart. So this tumblr will be dedicated to the wonderful language I grew up with.
