    Smile So's

    The follwoing sentence is from a fiction book.

    "I figured I'd best grab holt of you so's you wouldn't wake up slicing nobody".

    What does "so's" mean here?

    Thank you

    I'm not a teacher, not even a student.

    I suppose "so's" means "so as".

    All the Best...

    Re: So's

    so's = so that

    hold = hold

    This sounds like a hoodlum speaking in the 1920's.
