SUMMARY

A ACit: That's it. "Ah (I) don't wanna hear no more about it. ACit as far as Ah'm concerned." Addled: Confused, disoriented, as in the case of Northern sociologists who try to make sense out of the South. "What's wrong with that Yankee? He acts right addled." AD-dress: Where you live. "What's your AD-dress, honey?" A-DRESS: What women look very good in. "Jeans are nice, but I'd rather see a woman in a-DRESS." Afar: In a state of combustion. "Call the far department. That house is afar." Ah: The things you see with, and the personal pronoun denoting individuality. "Ah think Ah've got somethin' in mah ah." Ah 'magine: The first word means yourselfor as Southerners say, "yosef"and the second is an expression of intent or belief. "Ah 'magine she's 'bout the sweetest gull (girl) in Jeff Davis County." Ahce: Solidified liquid that is best employed in the cooling of mint juleps and aged bourbon. "This dry ink (drink) needs more ahce in it." Ahdin: I didn't. "Ahdin know the gun was loaded, Judge." Ahmoan: An expression of intent. "Ahmoan have a little drink. You want one?" Ahr: What we breathe, also a unit of time made up of 60 minutes. "They should've been here about an ahr ago." Ahreen: A lady's name. "You remember that song that was popular during the Korean War? 'Goodnight Ahreen'?" Aig: A breakfast food that may be fried, scrambled, boiled or poached. "Which came first, the chicken or the aig?" Ails: 1. Else. "Warn't nothin', ma'am. Anybody ails would have done the same thing." 2. To be ill or afflicted by something. "That mule sure is actin' strange. Wonder what ails him?" Aint: The sister of your mother or father. "Son, go over and give Aint Bea a big hug." Airish: Drafty, cool. "Don't leave that door open. It's too airish already." Airs: Mistakes. "That shortstop's made two airs, and the game's not half over yet." All Ah wanna do is hold you a little, is all: One of the most brazen, outrageous lies Southern men tell women, and always with the utmost sincerity. "All Ah wanna do is hold you a little, is all, honey." All over hell and half of Georgia: Covering a large area. "Ah've looked for that boy all over hell and half of Georgia." Alms: What beggars ask for, but what Southern men hold their girls with. "Ah just want to put my alms around you a little, is all." AMbolance: A four-wheeled vehicle used to convey the injured to a hospital. "That boy's hurt bad. Better call an AMbolance." Ar: Possessive pronoun. "That's ar dawg, not yours." Argy: To dispute in a contentious manner. "Ah told you to take your bath, boy, and Ah'm not gonna stand here and argy with you about it." Arkensaw: A Southern state some Yankees have been known to confuse with Kansas, even though the two have nothing whatever to do with each other. "She's from Little Rock, Arkensaw." Arn[read more]
