Hillbilly/English Dictionary

Vol. I, No. 3

bein a dickshunerry of how hillbilly english is used by buddy don duncan, mane care ackter in life n pinions of buddy don, hillbilly. utherns have differnt ways to use hillbilly n thays minny a bidy thats knows moren i do. but this mite be a hep in readin sum of buddy don's ritin. corse, tiz a wurk in progress. i reckon i oughta do a grammar, too, but one thang at a time.

(3/4/2004) this weekend ima gone ketch up with all them wurds folks has been sendin in. here's sum of them that cum in today. ifn i missed yers, please email me.

frum SemiPundit i gut a bunch of good wurds n a sayin or two, tho i dun had sum of em lack purty, so here the one i dint have yet: Shivverlay (Chevrolet), tard (tired), hisn (his) hern (hers) feesh (fish) arn (iron) warnit (walnut) maters (tomatoes) squarsh (squash) rainch (wrench) Murry (Mary, female name) Frigidairy (refrigerator, as in Frigidaire, a brand name) vurry (very) Turry (Terry, male name) durry (dairy) tham (them) that thar (that) unthaw (thaw, as unthaw a frozen water pipe) "My head's a-bustin." (I have a headache.)

i menchuned a while back how i wuz a'gone do a hillbilly grammar sumday, n mr SemiPundit is heppin git thangs started with this apt obsurvayshun: 'Almost anything ending in "a" is often transformed to an "ie" sound. Often there is pressure to not sound too educated (eddicated), which can cause problems in being accepted by common people (suffice it to say that I don't look down on such people--I am of them and understand their mindset; I just watched a hell of a lot of TV on the two channels we got and read a lot of books from the tiny library in town)':

Cubie (Cuba) Afrikie (Africa) Indiannie (Indiana)

'And, "ing" endings are often truncated to "in" endings. Again, one might sound too educated and attempting to be "actin' all society-like".'

not only that, but he give me a good sorce to fine more: 'For more insight, go to http://www.harlandaily.com, the Harlan newspaper website, then check out the Guestbook at harlancounty.com. There is a range of literate commentary and of that which could use some work. Most of the commenters are younger people, and they often talk of drugs, alcohol, and violence, which still plague the region. One of the high-profile murder victims was a former sherriff who sat next to me every day through high school.

When I was growing up, people used to comment disdainfully on how there was a TV antenna on every shack. In later years, the same comments were made about satellite dishes. Now it's computers and the internet.

If a scraggly antenna tied to a tree could show me what lay beyond the hills, just think about the potential these kids have. I check in occasionally and have seen some of the regulars grow. Most of all, I've seen many of them want more for their community and their children.

Sorry, Buddy Don-- I jist got a goin' an cuddint stop.'

no need fer inny kinda excuse mes, sir. tiz a grate servuz ye dun us n i preciate it.

frum andrew adams: 'These two are both pronunciation entries more than anything' bat trees (portable power storage devices, as in mah remote orta wurk, but i rekin it needs sum bat trees.) litter (metric unit of volume, as in 'Ahm a mite thursty. Runt ofta the store n git me two litter of sody.) 'Both of these are bona fide, I grew up hearing them out of my Arkansas hillbilly grandmother.  I rekin.'

frum Tommy Acuff of Big Stupid Tommy fame: hef (to hoist, as in 'hef that bale up on em otherns'), onry (pernounced on-ree, meanin angry, cranky n jes plane hard to git along with, as in 'he's as onry as a yellojacket today!' Tommy spelt it thisaway: on'ry, but ima trine to git as minny posstrofees out of the lingo as i kin. it cum a flood (an intense rain shower that starts suddenly, often out of nowhere, as in 'we were out there in the field when it come a flood.'
