Honey the word comes from the word "Hollow." Hollow refers to a valley that is between two hills and it represents a "hollowed out space." Pronouncing the word "hollow" as "holler" does not represent ignorance it is just an ancient pronuciation of the word. Chill!!

Poor punctuation again.
What is a U people or U live? The definition for it is
:the 21st letter of the English alphabet, a vowel.

So wouldn't you be saying: for all the 21st letter of the English alphabet people that say the 21st letter of the English alphabet live in a holler?

You never fail at being stupid do you.

And I think you hit the caps lock key, that is why all the letters are big. Its on the main left of the keyboard, and the forth key down from the top.

Good Grief, people like you make me want to cry out in pain. You don't make any "since" to me, what difference does it make to you how we pronounce our words?

People are so immature on here. What does it matter if people say holler or hollow, you shouldn't judge them maybe people were raised to call it a holler. If you don't like they way people talk here in Eastern Kentucky all I can say is Move!!!!

There should be a comma after the word stupid. There should be a question mark at the end of the same sentence. And "forth" should be spelled fourth.

Another more common definition for holler in Appalachia,"that includes east ky and WVa, the Ozark mountains as well" is the depression or valley between two mountains. Original or more correct pronounciation Hollow was lost due to us being landlocked and isolated for generations. The Scotts Irish, English and German peoples that settled here kind of established their own way of talking and it is just part of our natural speech pattern.
Mountain folk like Patty Loveless make a living at it for I doubt if she could sell a record if she talked like a flatlander and did not have that mouuntain twang to her voice. You could not beat it out of Loretta Lynn and others, ingrained and their to stay.

You make fun of the way we talk, we make fun of you poor smucks trying to live on concrete with all your urban problems. Sometimes we also holler from one side of the the holler to the other just to communicate. "Ya going to Lexington this weekend" Nah! "going up to Cincy" give my money to them buckeye's and get mud on their street. They appreciate my business more and don't care how I talk as long as the money is green! Or Johnson City!....lol

Kiss this ol holler rats...a#*!

You poor "holler folk" come on here and act as if you have accomplished some great feat by butchering the English language. Do you not realize that A person is judged by their SPEECH as well as their appearance? Would it take too much effort for you pathetic creatures to try to improve yourselves so you can at least fill out a job application or conduct a job interview without being dismissed as some kind of retard? Think about it!

A typo hardly compares with people who don't even know what the words mean.

us poor "holler folk" don't give a big damn what we are judged by. Think about that, hunny!
and we are not pathetic creatures, we are human beings.
Just because someone is different than you or thinks differently than you, does not make them less of a person.
My grandparents and their moms n dads n brothers n sisters and all those before them spoke this way and perhaps even in a better light yet still in the same way.
if you don't like how someones speech pattern is, then why don't you just walk away?
I, for one, will talk like this and be me til the day i die!
So get over yourself and what others think cause it will change NOTHING!!
and as for you calling us poor holler folk "retards", you should be one to talk. obviously you are not from these woods, so get the hell out while you can!
ever had spit in your eye?
u r about to get it real soon!

oh, and i am positive there are actual people out there with some slight to severe disabilities who may get wind of this high class thing you like to call poor holler folk. what was it? I think you referred us as some kind of "retards"?
Now how high class and snooty of you to put more than just us pathetic creatures down.
you should be so proud of yourself.

and for the record, that last part was total sarcasm.

who the hell are you to tell someone how to talk when you are just a piss face pile of crap yourself?

LOL=Laugh out loud or laugh on line. I love it. People think of us as undereducated hillbillies and they never fail, by their own intellect, to cause us to emerge with the demeanor of a Harvard and/or Yale graduate, compared to them that is!

Way to go "u suck"!!!
