darkriver Folklore: favorite southern US expression (266* d) RE: Folklore: favorite southern US expression 18 Feb 03


A linguist once told me that southerners prefer the expression "paper sack" to "paper bag." He said they also use "burlap bag." In other words, the northern 'sack' = southern 'bag' and vice-versa.

Would all you southern folk please confirm or deny? Would be nice to know if James Woodward was putting me on. Thanks.
