There was a funny show on PBS, about words and American language. In the opening sequence they started in NY and asked people what "schlep" meant. Everyone got it, transport, haul, etc. They headed south and it faded until they got nothing but "I don't knows." Then, as they got to TX it started to find meaning again ... or at least everyone told the same joke ... "I don't know her name, but I schlep with her last night!"
(schlep has a a literary depth, and passes my spell check, but English is a wide and flexible thing.)
