Time for this month’s Appalachian Vocabulary Test
- Eat up
- Eat up-bite badly, consume. “I swear the chiggers have eat me up this summer.”
- Evening-time between noon and night. “Late this evening we’ll go fishing if you want too.”
- Et-eat, ate. “Come on in and sit down, have you et?”
- Far-fire. “If you play in the far you’ll pee in the bed.”
- Fer-for, far. “Mother said she was going to town and I said what fer you just went yesterday?”
I use all of this month’s words-except et-but I hear it on a daily basis cause The Deer Hunter uses it. I think far and fer are funny-cause if we just said far for fer we’d almost be right-does that make sense to anyone else? Hope you’ll leave me a comment and tell me which words you’re familiar with.
