Dialects or thereabouts
As we become questionably more educated hereabouts, words such as hereabouts are quickly becoming educated into extinction.
I personally spent the first half of my life trying to rid my vocabulary of the many words which quickly pegged me as coming from a corn farm somewhere north and west of wherever civilization--and proper English--ended. I regret the ridding. Would like to reverse it.
