"Words" - The Bee Gees, 1989

I started thinking this morning that hearing certain words/phrases on the TV or radio can tell me immediately where in the world I am located (assuming that I'm ignoring accents, I mean).

Here are three examples...

If the weather for the days ahead is being described as "misty and murky" or "settled" (versus "unsettled"), then I'm in the UK.

If the announcer says, " long have ya'll been in business?", then I'm in Texas.

And if the morning TV traffic reporter says that the city is "stall and collision free", then I'm in Calgary, Alberta, Canada!
