Quaint Sayings in South Carolina.
Some years ago Iiiclisrd Grant White
wrote a delightfully interesting book
on Aicricai'.ns. tie might well have
divided the subject into two parts
Yankecisins and Southerr.isms.
Absolut? ccneutness in pronuncia
tion or in the formation of sentences is
a most diilicult accomplishment, and
few there be, either ioith or South,
who have reached such a degree of
perfection that no exceptions can bo
taken by " caiping critics" to their ut
terances. Iu the matter of pronunciation the
times are changing.and one can scarcely
keep pace with the innovations being
introduced by tho leading orthoepists.
The purpose of this paper is, how
ever, to present, in a succinct way, a
few of the quaintnesses of pronuncia
tion and construction held to by the
Southern people as a class.
Among thiSvi tho first that comes to
mind is the custom of omitting tho
last two iettei'3 of such words as "more,"
'store," "four," which are pro
nounced "mo," "sto,"and "fa"
"What o'clock is it?" you ask tho
Carol' iau, and ten to one he tells you
it is " h:f-ps' fo', " if that happens to
be the hour.
Another common Sonthemism is tho
use of "like as if," or " like" for the
word. "as if."
" She looked like she know me," is a
common expression, or, "she looked
like as if she'd die." This is very com
mon in Washington, and in all tho
States South of Mason and Dixon's
The word "funny" is frequently used
instead of strange, and sometimes with
A young Southern girl was visiting
us once, and a caller was telling of the
death of her mother through swallow
ing a iishbone.
"Oh! wasn't it funny?" exclaimed
our visitor, at tho close of the narra
tive. "I think you mean strange," said
tho caller, as soon as she lecovcred
from tho astonishment. Our girl
friend has never used the word "funny"
If you happen to hear anybody say "rye
cheer" you may know it is intended to
mean ""right here." For instance:
A South Carolinian will say, "Where
was he at last night?" and his fellow
cimoa will say, "He daid ryo cheei
Djear pronounced in one syllable
is not a Eussian woid, as might be sup
posed ; it means "Do you hear?" and
is usuallv addressed to Servants in this
form: ""You Jim! Bring in that wood,
d jeai 5"
"To get io go" is essentially a Geor
gia exp ession. They say:
"Do don't fail to come to-night,"
and the leply is: "IVo tried to get to
go three weeks now, so I reckon I'll be
Th- rvjm ,sioa "Do don't" is heard
in Ovrii and Soxith Carolina, but
Oiio of the most laughable things you
over hoard i". the peculiar pronuncia
tion of the worl " about." at is impos
sible to express the South Carolinian"
pronunciation phonetically. It sounds
like abaout pronounced very quickly
in three syllables.
"Quare," for "queer," is aiother
word. The use of "reckon" for " pre
sumo" is said to have been derived
from tho Yankees, as was the expres
sion "right smart" for the wcrd
In imitation of the English, perhaps
is tho custom of saying "I've get it ' foi
" I have it;" and the general use of tho
woid " got" where it is quio unneces
sary. Also English is the u?e of "oblir''
as " I'm obliged to do it," for " I ui?t
do it;" "he is obliged to go" for "he
Ambiguity of expression is too prev
alent in Dixie, and too many people
sacrifice sense for sound.
Low-country people and the residents
of middle South Carolina say "gee
arden"for "gardtn,' "gee-yard ' for
"guard," with the hard sound of " g."
So, too, with such words as -can!,"
"car." and " cart," into which is iutio
duced the sound of "kee." to take the
pico of the first cor.scnant, thus: "Kce-
orA " "lr-ar.",4ee-rt.
The use of delightful for delicious in
such a sentence as: "The ice cream is
delightful," is very common.
" Pretty" is a- word very often mis
used, for 'instance: " Isn't this a pretty
ayjand this error i3 a very general
North Carolinians say the scenery is
"pretty" meaning picturesque; the
day is "pretty" meaningfine, and that
a person's manners are "pretty" mean
"You all," or, as it should be abbre
viated "y'll," is one of the mest ridic
ulous of all the Sonthornisms I can call
to mind. It usually means two or more
persons, but is sometimes used when
only one person is meant.
For instance, a caller, on taking her
departure,says: " Y 11 must come to see
us." She means the lady upon whom
she is calling and her husband inay
Zeigler, of tho meat market on South
C street, killed a Bteer the other day
whose teeth were completely incrusted
with gold and silver bullion.
The animal came from a ranch on
Carson Eiver, and the precious metal
on the enamel of the teeth doubtless
accumulated from drinking the v nter
of the river, which is impregnate 1 with
the tailings from the mills reducing
This circumstance is not new, how
ever, as Sam Davis mentioned r,cn.e
thing similar before in the Caion Ap
peal. Most of the cattle along the river
have their teeth afflicted in the s.ime
Their owners might scrape off quite a
revenue from them if they had any
financial sense. Virginia City (Nev.)
