Wednesday's Word
formerly known as the "What're Words For..."

Word: Ain’t got nawthin (Int. phrase)
Definition: This is actually a question which means: “Do you have a drink?” Another form is: “Ain’t got nawthin’ on ye?”

This is pure Downeast and is essential for anyone learning the language.

(Definition from: "How To Talk Yankee", by Gerald Lewis & Tim Sample, copyright 1979, 1986 by The Thorndike Press; copyright 1989 by the First North Country Press)
