According to The Dictionary of Smoky Mountain English people in my area use the word never in two ways which differ from the traditional use of the word.
1. Never replaces a past-tense verb referring to a single event. Correct usage: “I didn’t see Scott and Seth at the festival.” Incorrect usage: “I never seen Scott and Seth at the festival.”
2. Never is followed by did and the infinitive of a verb. Correct usage: “I have never been to a place that was so lonesome and sad.” Incorrect usage: “I never did go to a place that was so lonesome and sad.”
I totally agree with the Dictionary, because I use never in exactly the way it claims. But what I’m a little doubtful about is whether or not my usage is all that different from other areas of the US. So leave me a comment and tell me how you never.
