Default We use the same words in Arkansas

We use all these words, including all y'all (which I have personally used and seemed to make sense at the time). A lot of these are strictly Southern, which I found out in my last job, which had a lot of travel.

My favorite memory on the language thing was at a northern airport. I told my boss "it looks like its fixin to rain". A lady sitting nearby asked me what I said, so I repeated the remark. She said, "I heard that, but what does it mean?". That shocked me - didn't realize that was Southern.

We have probably gotten off topic here, but it has been interesting and fun.
