I hear these phrases regularly.
I grew up in Southwest PA, live in NC and travel frequently thru WV.

Some of these words or phrases I don't realize isn't the norm until someone else points it out to me. A lot of the time people won't, because they don't want to be rude. I've never thought twice about pocketbook or hamburger meat. Huh That's just second nature to me. It's always easier to point out things from dialects other than your own, which is a bit ironic.

seems normal to me….pocketbook, hamburger meat, chipped ham, what else do you put in your buggy?

There's snow on them thar hills. - there is snow in the mountains over there.

This is way spendy - this is too expensive.

I don't even...No

Thank God I wasn't raised speaking Hillbilly, or I might just kill myself.

What do you call this?









Is this a dialect or is it confined to their household? "Beautimous", "sammich", "marronaise", "sketti" etc. ?

I can't watch the videos, but I have definitely heard beautimus, sammch, and sketti. I consider them redneck slang.

I'm from east TN and recently needed to go back there (my mama died). Was good to hear some of the old words and that manner of speaking again. Had been awhile. Thanks for posting this, DarkLight. Really enjoyed it.
Here's a couple more familiar to

my neck of the woods = the area you're from or where you live
Jerk a knot in your ass = spanking
Keep your sightberries peeled = means watch for or look

lol

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

Thanks. And the gay rapists from Deliverance? Are they rednecks or hillbillies?
