    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.
    I am not a teacher.

    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.
