Dot | Street Scene . 1
Dot (The Dot) ... A large neighborhood of Boston adjacent to Roxbury and South Boston. Bostonians consider the letter R to be largely a useless affectation. Therefore, Dorchester is properly pronounced Dotchestah, which abbreviate to Dot, saving two valuable syllables. Sometimes The is used before Dot, but that's getting fancy, and if there's one thing we're not in Dot it's fancy.
The Urban Dictionary offers the following typical usage example ... I had a run in with the po-pos over in dot. Capitalization is obviously optional as well.
