how to speak "southern"

"might could"

a phrase used to describe a possibility or probability of action.

for example: "you might could find that CD if you look at best buy"
or: "we might could just meet you there before the show"
even: "i might could order 'hooked on phonics'"

this unlikely combination of words forms a phrase to take the place of "maybe", "possibly" or "probably". it is used when the speaker is a bit unsure yet vaguely confident that what he or she is suggesting is correct or reliable.

that one's for you, christina (hahahaha)
