    Five Western North Carolina dialects

    I ran across a short article about Appalachian American English dialects found in western North Carolina, with a link to samples. Those who are interested in regional American English might enjoy it.

    You probably wouldn't guess from the spelling used in the article, but sigogglin or sigoggle is pronounced sigh-goggle. It means askew, crooked or or sideways.
