What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
Some entries straighten out longstanding confusion about how southerners use the language; others illuminate fascinating new topics; all are scholarly and authoritative, yet completely accessible. The introductory essay alone is worth the price.--John Shelton Reed, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
