Thread Name: Folklore: favorite southern US expression
Subject: RE: Folklore: favorite southern US expression
My grandmother was a wealth of southern expressions. She would use the word "chunkin" which means to throw something. For example "Them boys are chunkin apples again."

This next one is a two for one: working medicine" and "yesdiddy". When the nurse asked what medicine she had taken, my grandmother replied "I took some workin' medicine yes'diddy." Translation: I took a laxative yesterday.

And when we were moving too slowly for her, my grandmother would say, "Y'all make haste!"
