Greg, what does it mean for an item to "sound regional"?

What I meant was, that pignuts sounded/appeared/seemed upon hearing it
from my father to be a likely regionalism, especially given that I had never
heard/seen/come across it before and that my dad and I grew up in different
parts of the USA and therefore use different regional items. Does this
make sense? Nevertheless, I should have checked it out myself before
posting the list about it--again, my apologies.
