Only if you're a yokel. "Redneck" is a subset of "yokel" involving a) being domiciled in the Piedmont, b) keeping vehicles on concrete blocks when they refuse to work, and c) a preference for inbreeding. (b) is optional. I just have to move to the Appalachians, or western North Carolina.... ObConlang: perhaps all these languages without associated cultures should get together in the same world. It would offer many opportunities for borrowing and foreign influence. Laimes, Wright. ____ "Originality is nothing but judicious imitation." -- Voltaire
