Sometimes in Appalachia we don't think using one subject in a sentence is good enough. Nope we feel the need to really drive the point home by using two subjects.
- Mildred Watkins-she won that car over at the dealership.
- Daddy-he never did like to watch tv much in the daytime, said he wanted to be out and about while it was daylight.
- That there chicken was standing right in the middle of the road when I went to work early this morning and it was still there when I came back home this evening. (This sentence is true! Chitter almost caught the chicken this evening but a car came along and scared it off. We're going to try and catch it again tomorrow if it makes it through the night-wish us luck!)
Sometimes we use double nouns to drive home the point as well:
- He needs to find himself a nice widow woman and settle down with her.
- He took off up the mountain with his rifle gun.
- I went out on the back porch and almost stepped on a big toad frog. It about scared me to death.
I'd like to say I'm not guilty of the grammar no-nos of using two subjects in a sentence or using two nouns in a redundant manner, but I'm pretty sure I am.
