If you are from West Virginia, odds are- these very words are probably a part of your everyday vocabulary. A lot of the things that I say are things that my Nan always said to me growing up.
I always said “Ma’am” and “Sir.” If I didn’t say thank you when I got my dinner, my Nan would look at me like she just smelled some onions.
Sometimes, West Virginia sounds pretty Southern! There isn’t a thing wrong with that!
My West Virginia twang shines sometimes, and if I travel, people usually guess a Southern state.
