How to sound like you're from here, no matter where you are in America. Wicked Good Words is a collection of words and phrases from places across the United States. Organized by region and peppered with engaging sidebars, it's a uniquely American road trip. You'll discover: In Ohio, that titillating talk about a four-way is all about a type of chili. When you rush the growler in Appalachia, you're filling your lunch pail with beer. A frog strangler in the South will send you running for cover: it's a heavy rain. In Louisiana and Texas, someone caught pirooting is nosing around. In the Northwest, something that's spendy is too expensive. A skeeter hawk, darning needle, snake feeder, spindle, ear sewer, needle, snake doctor, and stinger all refer to the same thing: a mosquito, depending on where you get attacked.
