- •HeyThis does not refer to something that cattle graze on. In the South, this is considered a formal greeting. Unlike Latin, there is no grammar change needed based off gender- it works for everyone.
- •Y'allUsed when referring to a group, often preceded by the word "hey." There are no other acceptable version- "ya'll" or "you guys" only indicate that you are an intruder.
- •Puttin' it upThis has no thing to do with direction or an ascension upwards. It simply means to return something to where it belongs.
