Dear fellow lexigrapplers,
This week in the latest A Way with Words podcast, Martha reminisces about her family's mountain roots while dipping into the delicious vocabulary of Southernisms found in the Dictionary of Smoky Mountain English. When ya'll listen to this one, you'll find out what a "cackleberry" is--and why you don't want to drink milk that's "blinky." Listen here:
Don't forget, we're always looking for contestants for our "Slang This!" quiz. We'll find out on the air what you know about a couple of hot-rocking slang terms. If you want to play, all you need to do is send us your full name, location, a daytime telephone number, and your favorite slang word.
Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett
