9781556226168: Bubba Speak: Texas Folk Sayings

Handed down via oral tradition, Texas folk sayings are expressive, unique, useful, delightful, quite descriptive, oftentimes bizarre, and always entertaining.

"Bubbas" have a way of communicating that can leave the rest of us wondering what's been said. Much of the colorful language of these rural folk harks back to the early days of Texas settlers, and has been in use ever since. Go into any small Texas town, sit in the local cafe at breakfast time, and you may well hear almost every phrase in this book. Bubba Speak is almost required reading for anyone new to the state of Texas. Like the foreign language books that we carry overseas, this book will enable the visitor to communicate and even understand most of the conversation.

So "set a spell" as you take an excursion through the colorful language and expressions of Bubba Speak. Read these expressions out loud — they sound better that way.
