In the region known as "The South" (which includes such states as Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Orleans, Arkansas, Missouri, etc.) there is a special breed of English which is spoken there called "Southern English". Here are some vocabulary terms and phrases which can help you when you travel to this region.
Bard vs. Borrowed
One of the things you may notice when hearing and trying to speak Southern English, is that many words are shortened and many vowels are either ignored largely, or just not pronounced fully. The words "bard" and "borrowed" are good examples.
In Southern English, the word borrowed is often spelled and pronounced as bard. Examples:
"My brother bard my car yesterday, but didn’t bring it back like he promised" or "My neighbor bard my grass cutter, I’ll get it back this Friday."
Caint vs. Can’t vs. Cannot
In Southern English, the word caint is often used instead of can’t or cannot. Examples:
"That caint be right, I’m gonna ask my pa" or "That caint be true, I don’t believe you caught a fish that weighed 100 pounds."
Mess means a lot of
In Southern English, the word mess can mean two things: a literal "mess" as in a disaster or unclean area; or it can mean a whole bunch or many things. Examples:
"He’s in a mess of fine trouble now, his teacher caught him cheating on his English test."
