I recently came across some old vocabulary quizzes from an Appalachian Course I took in college, and thought it would be fun to test you as well!
10. aye gonnies
1. addled-crazy, dizzy, or dazed "After falling out of the tree, the boy was addled."
2. agg-to encourage a fight, argument, or action "She agged on the fight by making fun of his mother."
3. aim-plan to do something "I aim to make some fried pies for breakfast."
4. allow-state your opinion on a subject "I allow Chitter and Chatter are growing up too fast!"
5. anti goglin-sideways or crooked "The mirror is a little anti goglin."
6. anty over-hand over or give an item up "I won the bet so anty over the money."
7. arsh-Irish "We are having some good arsh potatoes for supper."
8. ary-any "Have you seen ary deer this season?"
9. atter-after "I'll see you atter while."
10. aye gonnies-I'm going "Aye gonnies to town-need anything?"
There are 2 of the words I've never heard-except in the college course-aye gonnies and anti goglin. All the rest I hear on a regular basis. I hope you'll leave me a comment and let me know how many you were familiar with.
