    What is surprising to me is that just a few miles from me, as the crow flies, across the river, the dialect changes. The folks on the Calhoun Country side of the River speak softer and a little slower, giving the impression of living a lot more settled and comfortable life, then on my side of the river. I think that they are also less prone to profanity over there too. I find it very pleasant. Their lifestyles are not much different but their language is.

    Here in Bama the two things I notices was, 1. That you 'carry' EVERTHING, no bring or take any thing or anyone any where! 2. A 'branch' has nothing to do with a tree, but if a small creek has not name it is referred to as a 'branch'!;)
    When it really rains 'cats and dogs' they say 'it fell a flood'!!

    I just love how this thread reminds me how different all us Americans can be. And with how things have been lately, how divided we must seem to be to outsiders. But we will all come together under one flag...defended by our Hero's from all walks and opinions.. Some outsiders have had to find that out the hard way... american-flag-wind.jpg

    Jim- we usually "tote" things. A far as a small stream- have you never had "Bourbon and Branch?"

    I usually have it 'on the rocks'!;) But what I mean is you 'carry' people to the store, hospital, dinner, and etc. The same with property. ;)

    Very funny and good movie. Inner Chicagoans used to say “yoots” too.

    Bubblah (bubbler) water fountain

    Also in Portland, Oregon. The public water fountains are known as Benson's Bubblers, after the mayor of Portland whose idea they were.
