what is the literary term that describes odd phrases that are local to a specific area? examples might be “those chilluns mommicked me” or “even a blind hog will find an acorn once in a while”

Yes, such phrases are called slang that do not use standard vocabulary or language. Depending upon different regions and areas, there are different types of slang like urban slang, rural slang, gay slang and common slang. etc.
