Language is never static, it changes and evolves over time. I used to study theology, you simply wouldn't believe the disputes over translations.

Really? When? They told me for years it wasn't a word. About time it was considered a word.

With regard to language, consider this: Along the Southern East Coast (Virginia/ Carolinas/ Georgia) what you may be hearing is the Queen's English. Bits of Elizabethan English that stuck in the 1600s-early 1700s.
