Regionalizing the Atlanta Airport Experience

On a trip through the Atlanta airport one day I was listening to the train recording that announces at which terminal the train is stopping. You know the drill – “Now approaching terminal:
* A as in Alpha…
* B as in Bravo…
* C as in Charlie, etc."

Then I thought: Atlanta is a southern city; if the examples had a southern flavor, they might come out like this:
* A as in Ain’t
* B as in Barbeque
* C as in Catawampus
* D as in Dang!
* E as in Elvis
* T as in Tea
