This delightful pocket or purse size book will help you interpret what we Texans are trying to tell you....
It explains the meaning of Texan-speak, such as "kinihepyew," "Heighty" and "how'syamomandthem...."
First, some geographical caveats: Texas is so big, it has at least two distinct dialects: the East Texas drawl (where you'll be asked if you want regular "tay" or "swate tay" to drink with your dinner) and the West Texas twang.
The drawl is characterized by a slow elongation to words, usually adding a syllable (or four)...as an example, "help" becomes "HAY-yelp."
The twang, on the other hand, is more nasal and sometimes words are shortened...as an example, "help" becomes "hep."
Written by Lou Hudson, this is an absolutely delightful little book...and it was printed in Texas by Texans.
