Central Pennsylvania dialect is a regional dialect of American English spoken in the central part of Pennsylvania. Most scholars view the dialect as closely related to Western Pennsylvania speech, often referred to as Pittsburgh English, although Western Pennsylvania speech extends beyond just the city of Pittsburgh. Some analyses include Central Pennsylvania in the Appalachian English dialect. The area is also frequently described as a portion of the Midland or South Midland dialect area.
Many Central Pennsylvania English speakers use the term redd or redd up to mean "to tidy". For example, You've got to redd up before you can go outside. This is from the old Norse by way of Middle English and probably arrived with the Scots-Irish. Other words heard in Central and in Western Pennsylvania are thought to come from the area's Scots-Irish settlers, as well. These include slippy ("slippery"), nebby ("nosy") and the second-personplural pronoun you'uns, related to Western Pennsylvania's yinz.
Another form from Scots-Irish is seen in sentences such as This car needs washed to mean "This car needs washing" or "This car needs to be washed." This form is heard in Central and Western Pennsylvania and in parts of Northern Ireland; it is thought to derive from Scots Gaelic.
When referring to consumable products, the word all is used to mean all gone. For example, the phrase the butter's all would be understood as "the butter is all gone." This likely derives from German.
The word anymore is used to mean something like "nowadays" in sentences without negative polarity, another usage related to German. For example, We use a gas stove anymore means "We use a gas stove nowadays."
