MEDIA REVIEWS

An enjoyable book for natives who cherish regional speech and for newcomers who want to learn the dialect.

--Southern Living

Wilder has been all over hell and half of Georgia looking for memorable southern expressions.

--Orlando Sentinel

A compilation of southern idiom that is without equal. . . . There cannot be a soul alive who appreciates southern speech in its richness and variety more than Wilder.

--Raleigh News and Observer

It's not really necessary to learn everything in [You All Spoken Here] to get by in the South . . . but it helps folks moving to or traveling through the South to avoid feeling like a short dog in high grass.

--Montgomery Advertiser
