Linguistics are definately region specific and can also be finely zeroed in on a specific locales such as the mountains of east TN when compared to the foothills of se TN. Sometimes just a difference of 50 miles will have a pronounced difference in dialects and terminology. Im on my phone right now and ill throw up a site, if I can find later that will narrow down to a specific
area with a decent degree of accuracy just based on dialect and use of verbage.

Have fun with thus in the mean time.

Crap fire and save matches. Crap in the creek to keep from catching the woods on fire.

I heard someone say "ette" recently. Used in the past tense of the word "eat."
-used to hear that some growing up, but has been years since I've heard it.

"I'm fine as frog hair" means I'm doing good.

"Hanging in there like a hair in a biscuit" means you are doing as well as can be expected.

I use "fine as frogs hair split three ways" now that is fine!
