Record #:
Farmers of the coastal plain section of North Carolina can be completely understood by each other and almost incomprehensible to others. Shades of meaning of some phrases or terms depend much on locale, and dissimilar terms sometimes describe an identical activity. Additionally, the passage of time and the advent of new agricultural technology yields a changing and newer dialect.
