Letter: Comments on Great Wooded South Lexicon

Doug McCammish writes:
Having been raised in Kentucky (Winchester and further north), there were only two phrases that puzzled us when we moved to Columbia:
  • "From off" - the meaning became evident quickly, and people were kind to explain things.
  • "Don't care to" - took a while. It means "I'd like that." (the opposite of what it might mean elsewhere)
One other common "phrase" was also difficult.
  • "Where is Dr. Max Downey's office?" - "Where the old post office was."
  • "Where is Dr. Janella Brown's office?" - "Near where the candy factory was."
  • "Where are the new fairgrounds going to be?" - "Out near where Oshkosh was."
We have found it common in the south to get directions based on where something used to be.

Great Wooded South Lexicon XIII


Previous Lexicon: Great Wooded South Lexicon XII

By Billy Joe Fudge

Yes, it has been a "spell" (see definition below) since I've updated our GWS Lexicon. However, there has been a "passel" (GWS Lexicon II) of folks move into our area that are having great difficulty understanding us locals and being understood, due to Local Linguistic Cognitive Disorder. LLCD has been studied extensively by Great Wooded South University for the last six decades, and that study continues.
  • Spell - a period of time, usually of moderately short duration

  • Far - combustion which commonly produces heat, light and smoke; terminate one's employment

  • From off - a phrase coined by the late Ed Waggener, meaning, "someone who resides here but was not born or raised here"

  • Mater - a locally grown and vine ripened tomato which must both smell and taste the part, regardless of how it looks
