A friend sent me this link the Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) @ http://dare.wisc.edu/.
I took the synonym test for fun. I knew maybe half on each list. Totally zoned out on “rear” thinking it was about outhouses. Duh. It went with “raise” … as in “children.” Double duh.
I also learned two new ways to complain when my tummy hurts – collywobbles and mulligrubs. And for bonus, I found a wonderful frog picture for my collection to illustrate it. 🙂
