Howdy Y'all!

Since school's started in most places, I thought it apropos (love that word!) to have another lesson in How to Speak Southern.  I know y'all've been waitin with bated breath to improve y'all's vocabulary, so here ya go--

First, a little quiz.  I'll provide a word and you tell me what you think it is outside the southeast.  Check back tomorrow for the correct answers.  There may even be a little prize involved.

1.  Nachur

2.  Gummut

3.  Kep

4.  Ahce

5.  Share

6. Usta

7.  Lar

8.  Daints

9.  Quar

10.  Tal

Have Fun!!
