(1) As I type this, no one else has answered, so may I start?
(2) I went on the Internet and found out that Jersey Girl refers
to some girls born and raised in the state of New Jersey. A Jersey Girl
is said to:
have beautiful hair
have a mouth on her. (That is, she is not shy. She tells you what
(a) In English, we have the word stereotype. That means that we say
people in group X act this way. For example, there is a stereotype that
all the people in group X are good at mathematics. Of course, that is not
true. Some are and some aren't. Well, Jersey Girl is a stereotype. Not
all girls born in New Jersey love beer or have a mouth on them!!!
We also have the term Valley Girl. The stereotype says that she:
lives in California (in the Los Angeles area)
gets anything she wants from her parents
spends a lot of time at the shopping mall
does not get very good marks at school
is always saying words such as:
oh my god
This is, of course, a stereotype. Many girls in California speak
good English and are very intelligent.
In your country, do you also have stereotypes? For example, do you
say that all the people in area X are good or bad or stupid or
smart? That is a stereotype, because -- of course -- NOT all the people
in area X are good or bad or stupid or smart.
Let's hope that a Jersey or Valley Girl answers you.
