Some Southern English 2

Yup, many use double and triple modals and it’s right OK. English, like every language, has its many variations and dialects, which means that millions of people speak various forms of it.

According to Dr. George Boeree, a top scholar of English and the author of Dialects of English, "English is an unusual language. Already a blend of early Frisian and Saxon, it absorbed Danish and Norman French, and later added many Latin and Greek technical terms."

While Hollywood movies and stereotypes might dismiss Southern English as "primitive cowboy talk" this really isn’t true.

Not all cowboys lived in the southern parts of America, which automatically means that not all of them spoke what’s called "Southern" or "Southen" (depending on your accent) for short.

Using Double Modals
Although many European English teachers will cringe over using phrases such as: might be, might could, might should, might would, or even used to could, the fact is this is proper, "Southern speak" or Southern English.

In fact, there are just about as many people who speak Southern English as there are now native speakers of English in all of the UK!

When someone says "they might could" this is another way of saying the word perhaps, it’s that simple!

In Tennessee, amazingly enough, people use triple modals such as "I might should oughta relax."

          Jokes - On Southern English

Patricia Paris, no relation to Paris Hilton, is a columnist who writes about Southern English.

"Southern American English is a group of dialects of the English language spoken throughout the southern regions of the United States. Southern American English can be divided into different sub-dialects, with speech and phrasing differing between regions.

Tennessee, for instance, has three distinct regions – eastern, middle, and west – and each region has its own, unique dialect, but a practiced ear can detect subtle differences.

Well-known speakers of ‘suthen’ dialect include U.S. Presidents Jimmy Carter and George Bush, playwright Tennessee Williams, and singer Elvis Presley."
