If you are hunting the book, it might be Dale Freeman's "non-books" "How to
talk Pure Ozark...'Thout Hardly Even Tryin'" parts I and II which I got from
the SMSU bookstore a year or so ago.

Nevertheless, about 35 years later, while thumbing through a book on the
vocabulary of *Ozark* English, what before my wondering eyes should appear
but the citation, "kyahn. n. carrion." It blew my mind, to say the least.
Unfortunately, I'm unable to recall the title or the author of the lexicon.
