Southern Colloquialism of the Day


A little insight into the way us southerners talk, taken from a little pocket sized book called "The Complete How to Speak Southern," by author Steve Mitchell, who dedicated his books to "all Yankees in the hope that it will teach them how to talk right."

Today's word is Jevver.


Jevver - Did You Ever

As in "Jevver hear anything so dumb in yer whole life?"
