: There's probably a term for these phrases. But I don't know what it would be. I call them country-isms.

: There's a billion books with these sayings. And I'm trying to buy all of them. Listed here are my favorites. I have a couple of "scholarly" ones in addition to these:

: "Mountain Range: A Dictionary of Expressions from Appalachia to the Ozarks" by Robert Hendrickson....

Thanks, ESC. The books are duly noted. The titles are intriguing.

I've done a Web search or two for a site that collects this kind of stuff, but haven't been very successful. Has anyone found anything like these books mentioned, but in Website form?
