Product Description

The book is the dialectization of the unabridged text of Laurence Sterne's «The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman», Volume I (first published 1759) into redneck vernacular.
The translation originates in early runs of Al Capp's comic strip Li'l Abner (1934-1977). Capp's characters speak in odd dialects. However, they do not talk like real hillbillies but as Capp feels a hillbilly would probably talk if he lived near Dogpatch all his life.
Thanks to the Dialectizer, Samuel Stoddard's translation engine. Corrections and additional translations based on Al Capp, "Li'l Abner Dailies, Volume Two: 1936", Kitchen Sink Press, Princeton Wisconsin, 1988, and Al Capp, "Li'l Abner Dailies, Volume Seven: 1941, Introducing Moonbean McSwine", Kitchen Sink Press, Princeton Wisconsin, 1990.
