Are you sure it's an outsider perception? The one thing we can
say with some confidence is that the author considers himself or herself
to be quite familiar with this "Southern slang." I would guess that it
was written by a Southerner.

What? Not amused by an opportunity to correlate folk spellings as a clue
to outsider perceptions of southern phonology!
Shame on you!
