JUST FOR FUN!!
Click for the definition of colloquialism. I just never get enough of the Texas slang! Slang that is used locally can also be called an idiom. It becomes almost its own language. I know I've missed a passel of 'um so if you would contribute I would appreciate it! Add to the Texas sayings but let's start a collection of other states and areas! I have attempted to place my own opinion of the definition of these sayings. They may mean something else for someone else.
