Ok, I live in Michigan, I guess that's north enough to recognize a couple of those. They've been crayfish since I was little, and it's just slaw (which is what makes a really good reuben sandwich).

ROFL. I could go on forever about the PA Dutchisms. They say things like:

ret up....clean, tidy up

What fer....What kind of? .....as in "What fer car do you drive?"

They switch the use of *leave* and *let*... as in "Let me a message & leave me know if you can go."

They switch the use of *yet* & *still.* as in "Is he here yet?" meaning "Is he still here?"

rutch around...move restlessly

and on & on.... LOL
