GWS Lexicon fame spreads - reaches new breadth across US of A
This bulletin just in from the Land Beyond Clay Ridge; a highly respected Adair County native comments on the wonderful language which is our Mother Tongue
Comments re article 43708 Great Wooded South Lexicon Gob passel and more
from Dale Curry
Late of this place
Can hardly wait for more words from the Great Wooded South Lexicon.
In high school, I studied German (thanks, Mrs. Woody) and at a wonderful Baptist institution, I studied Greek and Hebrew.
But perhaps the most wonderful language is that spoken by southern Kentuckians.
Even those of us who have migrated as far north as Greensburg still understand the words in this article.
Thanks a gob for posting them here. -Dale Curry
