Glossary of Southernisms

I found a cute reference if anyone is having difficulties understanding their Southern brothers and sisters – A Glossary of Quaint Southernisms.

Not sure I agree with the author that the southern accent has “almost been successfully eradicated by the excellent Southern school systems” – last time I was in South Carolina it was alive and well! Also a friend from that state seems to think that the words in the glossary are not Southern but from Texas… Anyone else agree?
