Book Overview

This tongue-in-cheek dictionary of Southern words and phrases offers a hilarious spoof of the Southern accent.

This book is dedicated to all Yankees* in the hope that it will teach them how to talk right.

*Yankee: Anyone who is not from Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, and possibly Oklahoma and West-by-God-Virginia. A Yankee may become an honorary Southerner, but a Southerner cannot become a Yankee, assuming any Southerner wanted to.

   Great little pocket book
It is for a friend who is an emergency room doctor who moved south. He was anxious to read it. Told him that he needed to start saying to patients today what is ailing you to make them feel more comfortable.
Years ago, he bought this book, but misplaced it. I live in North Carolina and some people don't take it too kindly, but some find it funny. It is picked up, yew'all.
   I love it!
Lol's wife was killed in the process of Lol.
   To prepare you for Southern Culture Shock, A real riot to read and enjoy
You have to be light-hearted and take it with a salty grain. It is great for someone who moved just into the south and doesn 't want to have culture shock. It used to be difficult to understand some of these southern folk. LOL, I've always thought of LOL.
   Great Gag Book, Really Funny Content
I am into doing animated voiceover work and thought that this book might have some material in it useful for practicing a southern accent. I had it shipped to the bar I just worked for convenience sake, and on the day it arrived we managed to get some customers from the south with some very obvious accents. Though I took the book in hand in the other bartender's territory, I walked over to the southern group and said : I love the southern accent. In fact, I love it so much that I sent away for instructions on how to talk this way, and this arrived today, and I showed them the book and they all cracked up. Then we all had a blast reading out of the book. Helped make the southerners feel welcome at a NYC bar!
   Ordered for a friend who became a US Citizen
Arrived quickly.
