Subject: Re: Variation in S. Georgia(Waycross)

On the variation between so. and s. midl. in Waycross, see Grodon Wood's

"Dialect Contours in the Southern States," AS 38.243-56 (1963), repritned

in Allen & Underwood, READINGS IN AMERICAN DIALECTOLOGY, Appleton-Century-

Crofts, 1972 (p 122 ff). Wood examines vocabulary evidence of so midl.

migration through the deep South, including s. Georgia.

We used to get off the interstate and hit Waycross on the way from

Atlanta to Jax, and i always wanted to stop there, but we always had

screaming kids in the back.
