Reminds me of Doric (a dialect similar to English which people still speak in the rural communities here in Northern Scotland). A word of advice from personal experience: Don't use the words "slang" or "bad English" when trying to describe the language to someone who actually speaks it. Thy don tak a likin' to it!-Benj

Very interesting! My mother said that it is similar to the way older people used to speak in the rural Southern town she grew up in.-Lili
