Question: "Jeet jet?"

Translation: "Supper's ready, have you eaten?"

One word that has made it's way into mainstream spoken language and major newspapers and television: "snuck", rather than "sneaked". Traditionally, the usage would be: "Bubba and me snuck out of the Motel 6 witout paying the bill." Now we hear, "The boys snuck into the high school after dark and set a fire in the classroom. Film at ten."

"U'ens" I first heard in Pittsburgh and, of course, in Florida today with all the transplants.

Born in New Orleans and raised on the Mississippi Gulf coast, I have to say that English, as spoken in the South, has declined in quality. I suppose this observation officially marks me as an old geezer.

It's not Southern, but I like Dijon vu, which means "I've tasted this mustard before."

Unfortunately, Mary, "Zup?" is a further contraction of "Zup, homey?" or it's variant "S'up Homey?" which translated, is a contraction of "What's up, homeboy?" originally attributed to use in Jive as illustrated and so brilliantly translated in the movie "Airplane" . I believe that "Zup" has only recently been adopted into Hickbonics through common use. It's really sad to see such completely separate dialects begin to merge in this fashion. It is a substantial loss to the purity of language of both cultures.

Well, Hickbonics is a concatenation of Hick and Ebonics, so there you go! Perfect fit!

My people are from Mississippi but I was raised an Army brat. Everytime we went "home" for a visit, I had to be retrained to say "Yes, M'am, No, M'am" and my cousins always said "You talk like a Yankee!" But I do say "Ya'll"...
