How about an example of words we do like? Farmers in South Arkansas who
have farmed with mules always have great stories about those mules. They
also make use of very colorful language. One farmer told us a story about
a mule that got all snortified. Now snortified means much more than just
a snorting mule or an angry snorting mules. Snortified refers to a mule
that is really in a special kind of mood. The "ified" ending occurs with
lots of words in rural South Arkansas. But you won't likely hear such words
at a 4 C's presentation.
