    "On Yesterday"

    I recently moved from the Midwest to South Carolina. I hear people say sentences like, "I spoke with James on yesterday". I was wondering whether this was proper english or was, perhaps, a colloquialism that I am not familiar with because I am new to the area.

    Re: "On Yesterday"

    It's a Southernism.
