Might be off topic but I just have to share. I was raised in NJ, then after I got married we moved to NC. Redneck, is its own language. It took me years to understand the phrases and words. And if someone has a badd enough accent I still have trouble, even after 9 years!
here we go-
Yunns for ploural you
y'all for you all
Y'alls ploural of y'all (y'alls made it!)
Y'alls' ploural posessive (can we come to y'alls' house?)
Youngin for baby or child
plum over yonder for right over there
Briches is redneck for pants
all sneakers are tennis shoes lol
Tatters as in potatoes
dressing for stuffing (this one baffled me for years. It was only recently that I realized they meant stuffing and not like salad dressing )
Southern culture has a language of it's own!!! Y'all is perfectly acceptable down here and I even use it. It's a southern thing! Although... y'all is plural on it's own. You is singular, y'all is plural, but there is the y'alls as a plural possessive (i.e. y'alls house). I've never seen y'alls as a plural of y'all. That would be redundant. Sneakers are usually interchangeable with tennis shoes, taters is most often used for referring to a dish made from potatoes, britches and pants usually happen interchangeably also. Dressing though is "dressing" that we have at Thanksgiving. Stuffing is a different thing entirely and is some that is being "stuffed" into another food item like stuffed turkey or stuffed crabs have stuffing in them. Nobody here has "stuffing" for Thanksgiving because how is it stuffing if it isn't stuffed? LOL
Southerns do have a language of their own and the rednecks tend to run everything together. My MIL and her family do the one that drives me crazy the most though... everything ends in -er, as in win-der instead of win-dow! This woman actually tried to help my DD with homework one day... um thank you but DON'T!
We have entire populations of stupidity here though other than the redneck terminology. I seen or I seen'd, I been'd done that, She gone get, and the list goes on. AGHHHHH!!!!!! It's amazing how little education some people have. There word that I think makes me the craziest though is skreet as in "I done crossed that skreet," instead of "I crossed that street."
Le Creuset is Le Creu-say not Le Creu-set
Herb is erb not Herb
