In properly spoken Southern English, a person who is (or does something) crazy can be described as "tetched in the hade" (touched in the head), but one loses "touch" with reality ("S/he done lost touch, bless their little heart"). It's a very fine distinction that should never be violated, but no one knows why.

Does anyone know of a good college looking for an SSL (Southern as a Second Language) professor or translator?
