In a Pigs Eye: The Dictionary of Country Jawing by Ann Bertram

Throughout the United States, many folksy, regional, rural expressions have developed over the centuries and are still used today to describe certain people or situations in a distinctly unique and totally American way. Not all of these expressions and sayings are considered particularly good English; in fact, many of them are called downright illiterate - but they remain an important aspect of what is typically American. In addition to the definitions in the A-to-Z section, alternative and related definitions and paraphrases are offered as well as alternative forms of the entry head. And if a particular expression cant be found, theres the helpful Phrase-Finder Index which provides the form of a phrase or the correct usage of a word.
