9780060881641: Labels for Locals: What to Call People from Abilene to Zimbabwe

"Labels for Locals" is a quirky guide to what to call people from various locales, both the proper names and nicknames, the common and unusual. While there are some general rules and guidelines, there are also plenty of exceptions as well as historical and etymological reasons for those exceptions. Organized from A-Z, "Labels for Locals" sorts and categorizes these distinctions for the inquiring mind, and is packed with fascinating lore and history behind the terms. Whether you're a Liverpudlian, a Kiwi, or a Tar Heel, this book is sure to tickle your brain.
