Can you translate this sentence: "I'm gonna vamoose to the slide pond, but I hope I'm not looking like a strubbly stump mover."
i could not. Not until I took the UW's Dictionary of American Regional English quiz. It's a survey of how well you know the Wisconsin dialect. I knew one of the words in the survey, but the rest were a mystery to me...and I've lived here for over 20 years. That's one heckuva Uncle Arthur.
