    Actually, I take that back. The traffic reports here in the bay area sometimes refer to 880 as the Nimitz Freeway. Awful.

    Read this as "intestines".

    On that dialect survey I generally get Detroit (correct) and a scattering of other places in the Midwest and/or Far West. This short version isn't as good, I think. Plus they try to pinpoint cities and, as we've seen here, aren't necessarily that great at it. Though in my case I think part of the problem is that I am inconsistent in usage and pronunciation. It is difficult to access what my default dialect/accent is, to the extent that I actually have one.

    We refer to Interstate 64 as "40" or "Highway 40". It is US Highway 40, and got an Interstate designation only a few decades ago, and people her edon't like changes, so it still gets called "40". It REALLY throws people from out of town off.

    The only scenario in which I don't say "I" before the number is when I was a traffic reporter on radio and TV and would say something like "A collision on northbound 25 is blocking the left two lanes." I wouldn't often say "northbound I-25" for some reason.

    Seems unnecessary to say the "I". You should reconsider your stance Tommy. Only an asshole would need the I in order understand which road is being discussed.

    I will say I5, I10, etc, but refuse to say US60 or Loop 202, then it's just the 60 or the 202. So does that make me half an asshole?

    When the Emergency Broadcast System interrupted our DVR last week to warn us about pending flash-floods, the Four Hundred and Five freeway was mentioned as well as the Two Hundred and Ten, One Hundred and Thirty Four, and One Hundred and One freeways.

    Nope. The former, not the latter. I will proudly refer to all freeways as "The 5", "The 405", "The 101", "the 580", etc., until the day I die. Suck it, Tommy.

    Interchangeable, no, but that isn't what any of this is about.

    I have heard plenty of people refer to the any part of the digestive system as the stomach. Especially using "stomach ache" when the issue is in the intestines.

    I don’t think its people trying to self-diagnose problems with specific organs. It because stomach can refer to any front part of the body between the chest and thighs, so generalities are perfectly acceptable and accurate. (Lay on your stomach).
