Speaking Arkansas is very similar to speaking Oklahoma. Yihaw! :)


All y'all talk funny.


I resemble those remarks! Both my husband (current & former) and adult children say they can always tell when I'm talking to my mother on the phone because I start slipping into "Arkansas." And when I've lived away, people have said that I don't have an accent. Funny:)


Being from southern Ahia, in the foothills of Appalachia, I know what youins are talkin' 'bout. Would you believe I have an uncle who was arrested (multiple times) for brewing "white lightnin"?

True. And it's good stuff!


Yep, similar to Georgia ... and North Carolina too! ;)


Imagine growing up in a bilingual family where English and German would eventually create it's own linguistic challenge. My mother would constantly mix them all up and "invent" new words. Then throw in Bavarian, Austrian and Swiss words and accents, mixed with some Urdu, Farsi and Hindi. No wonder people look at me funny when I speak.

Hilarious! We only get that on sitcoms here!! :-) Get's me to thinkin' tho...


You'll have to demonstrate how to speak Arkansas for me some time. I used to get pulled up for speaking South Australian but it has finally faded, except of course when I go back to SA I get called out for speaking Victorian... You can never win!
