"Speakers of Southern mountain dialect are past masters of the art of coining vivid descriptions. Their everyday conversation is liberally sprinkled with such gems as: “That man is so contrary, if you throwed him in a river he’d float upstream!” “She walks so slow they have to set stakes to see if she’s a-movin!” “Thet pore boy’s an awkward size - too big for a man and not big enough for a horse.” “Zeke, he come bustin’ outta thar and hit it for the road quick as double-geared lightenin!”"
