    I really enjoyed 'The Southern Dictionary.' It's a hilarious book of southern sayings that has a unique way of telling the truth on all southern slang. I feel as though I could really 'speak southern' after reading the book, and I would definitely buy any more comedic books that this author comes out with. Great read. I strongly recommend it.

    Does the reviewer of this book get paid?  I am just curious, because I would think Barnes and Noble could hire someone who could write or edit for obvious mechanical mistakes, such as confusing the plural with the possessive.  Southerners know the difference.  Many of America's best writers are Southern.  It is also interesting that this reviewer chose to three common words to illustrate the uniqueness of the American South's linguistic heritage.  With all of the descriptive and colorful expressions that the traditional South is known for using, this reviewer uses "y'all."  [British punctuation, because it makes more sense.]  Financiers in New Jersey are aware of the term "y'all".  In addition, anyone who reads literature written before 1960 knows the meaning of "yonder" and "youngin."  Please tell me these reviewers are volunteers.

    A knowledgeable and informative read...

    For a dictionary, it’s not so big and scary which may shoe off many readers from touching it. With less than 100 pages the author has skillfully concise all the essential words and phrases which is very often used all over Dixie. The content is well organized and the format is quite easy to understand and follow. Explanations are given with proper definitions and good examples. I found it really interesting even though I’m not an American.  
    I was so amused to know the meaning of new words like “Biggity”, “britches”, “buggy”, “cattywampus” and many others. If you have come across phrases such as “A Whistlin' Woman and a Crowin' Hen Never Comes to a Very Good End”, “Don't Let Your Mouth Overload Your Tail”, “Do Go On”, “Feathers Ruffled”, “Go to Bed with the Chickens”, “High On The Hog” and wonder what they really mean, it’s high time you refer this book. Personally I found the phrase “Gimme sugar” very cute and loving. ¿ The Southern Dictionary would come very handy if you are planning to detour in Southern US, so why wait, go grab it!
