Default Regional dialects-most interesting things

It's well-known there are many English dialects according to country and region (Canada, Australia, USA, Great Britain, etc.), but now I'd like to learn more about interesting words and phrases, that are written or are pronounced in a different way and therefore would present a certain difficulty for interpreters. Any examples?
Thank you in advance)

I think 'youse' is an interesting word, meaning plural 'you'. It seems to be usually used in Ireland but I've heard it said on the radio by some speakers from the north of England, too. There is an article about in on the Guardian website: http://www.theguardian.com/books/aus...at-about-youse.
