Some of the Russian words that only the citizens of my home town will understand

Heeeeey :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Did you know that there are some words that describe the common things but they are used only in one region? :face_with_monocle:

I am from Volgograd, the city of the southern Russia. And we have the words that define you as a Volgograd citizen immediately. Here are top 5 of them:

  1. :small_blue_diamond: :large_blue_diamond: ГРЯДУШКА :large_blue_diamond: :small_blue_diamond:

    Грядушка [grya’du:shka] - is a bed headboard.

    There is even a bar in the center of the city called “Грядушка” which is quite popular :star_struck:

  2. :small_blue_diamond: :large_blue_diamond: КУШЕРИ :large_blue_diamond: :small_blue_diamond:

    Кушери [kushe’ri:] - is thick bushes that seem to be dangerous to go through.

  3. :small_blue_diamond: :large_blue_diamond: СИНЕНЬКИЕ :large_blue_diamond: :small_blue_diamond:

    Синенькие ['sinenkiye] - are eggplants. This word derives from the word “синий” which means “blue”.

  4. :small_blue_diamond: :large_blue_diamond: РАСТЫКА :large_blue_diamond: :small_blue_diamond:

    Растыка [ras’tyka] - is a clumsy person.

I hope it was interesting for you to know such things :blush: And I really would like to know if you have such regional words in your language :hugs:

But now my word of the month is going to be Грядушка :sweat_smile:
