I always heard it among Arkie folk as 'fixinta' /fIksInt[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]/. "I'm fixinta
go to the store."

We at Georgia State are working on the use of "fixinto" and her family in
Metropolitan Atlanta. Can you give us leads on historical studies as

Why "fixinto," why one word? Where did you get this spelling? I'm
interested simply because it would seem to run the separate words
together and I very much see the term as two words--fixin' to . . .
whatever one is fixin' to. Just curious.
