I used to love listening to my Granny tell stories. I’m actually blogging about it today over at The Writer’s Alley. For one thing, she was a great storyteller, for another I LOVED listening to her Appalachian dialect. One of the things I noticed was the way verbs were used at times.
For example, she might say “Come here, I’m gonna learn you something.”
“Reach me that cup, will ya?”
It would be fun to look at all the ways verbs are used in different ways in Appalachia. Do you have any to share?
