Are you a true Southerner?
Most of the time, when people think of southern states, they automatically think of Georgia, Alabama, Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Texas is sometimes also thought about and include, because of its history of slavery and because of the fact that is still considered one of the Confederate States of America. This region of states and land has its own special lingo and its own special way of communicating. According to Wikipedia, "The southern United States, also known as the American South, Dixie, Dixieland, or simply the South, is a region of the United States of America. It is located between the Atlantic Ocean and the western United States, with the midwestern United States and the northeastern United States to its north and the Gulf of Mexico and Mexico to its south." Did you know that actress Sandra Bullock, the star of Miss Congeniality, was born in Virginia? How about the fact that George Clooney, the star of Ocean's 11, was born in Kentucky? Courteney Cox, the lovely actress who played the role of Monica Geller on Friends, was born in Alabama! These are some major stars who came from the South. Without the South, we might not have ever seen any of their faces on the big screen! They likely all grew up speaking with Southern lingo and using Southern terminology that people from other states might not understand! If you consider yourself to be a true Southerner like Sandra Bullock, you will know all of this lingo!
