BigT: Do people use the phrase "fixing to" in the Ozarks? I know it is very common south of the Ozarks. Are you familiar with the terms "a hoot and holler from" and "clean over to" used as description of distance? I have watched so much Beverly Hillbillies lately I don't know if they are part of my natural vocabulary or not. I do "reckon" from time to time. Also, I have noticed that people in the southwestern United States do not know where "over yonder" is nor do they know what a "dog trot house" is.
