A Wicked Good Guide to Understanding the LanguageAuthor: Dean Lunt
Publisher: Islandport Press
A ninth-generation Maine native tackles the language of Maine in a book that reveals the culture and heritage behind the words we use everyday. Ayuh, the language of Maine is more than just an accent and few catch phrases like “You can’t get there from here.” We reckon, it is all that, but it also includes idioms, words, sayings, and stories birthed in the state’s sometimes harsh environment and hardscrabble living conditions or that harken back to words rooted in the home countries of Maine’s immigrants. This book looks at it all; from the wicked funny to the serious to the stories told at lumber camps and fish wharves. It’s perfect for native Mainers as well as those from away to enjoy a laugh and to learn just a tad more about Maine.
