n. Dialect and accent used in Baltimore, especially in the Dundalk area, characterized by a nazalised "oh" vowel ("hoem" and "phoen" for "home" and "phone"), dropped consonants ("bawlamer" or "bawlmer" for "Baltimore"), and catch-phrases like "doen'cha knoe, hon."
n. A person who speaks using the dialect, and behaves in a characteristic manner, such as rabid fandom of the Baltimore Orioles, walking down the middle of the street when there is a perfectly good and clear sidewalk, eating bushels of whole soft-shelled crabs doused with Old Bay seasoning, etc.
Listen to the song "Crabs For Christmas" for a definitive rendering of Baltimoron.
Get out of the middle of the street, you Baltimoron!
