can you figure out what pittsburgh language means?

now, any non-pittsburghers, let's and try and see if you can figure these out...

-what is pop?
-what do pittsburgher's call sandwiches?
-what is do we put ON our sandwiches?
-what is dahn tahn?
-what's yins?
-what's youns?
-what's diddint?
-what's a gumband?
-what's a stiller?
-what's a primanti's?
-what's a crick?
-what's 'gint iggle?
-what does 'jeet' mean?

lol, actually, i don't even really use most of these terms, Mom made me speak properly, but i sure as **** have heard them enough and used to use many of them when i was little...
and might i ask my fellow pennsylvanians to not answer these questions? we can then get a laugh from some of the answers that people post. :D
