The Regional Vocabulary of Texas by E. Bagby Atwood

The vocabulary of Texas, and of the Southwest, has a character that sets it apart from all others. It is to some extent an amalgamation of words brought from other sections. A more important ingredient, however, has been a large group of words that initially grew into usage in Texas itself.

Utilizing a thorough knowledge of language and a remarkable insight into linguistics, the author, Professor of English at the University of Texas, has compiled a reference book for scholars, writers, and laymen whose interests involve the use of this vocabulary. It is a well-balanced book, designed to present to the reader not only the actual vocabulary in use but also the area involved, topical surveys of words used, their backgrounds, and geographical aspects of their usage. Easterners and Westerners alike will relish the unique flavor of the Southwestern vocabulary.
