Excerpt from Glossary of Supposed Americanisms

Confined to New England. Her origin is purely English; the small amount of Irish or Scotch will not detract from the truth of this assertion; and it is among her people that we are to look for those peculiar modes of speaking which distin guish her from her sister States, and as the true descendants.
