Think it's a shortcut? Instead of saying "I have seen it" >> "I seen/seent it"

It's all dependent on how active the redneck gene is and how much hormone it's adding to your system. There's a video I seen on it and it beats all you ever saw.

Been figuring over that for a good 35 years now.

My fav is when people use the word “are” instead of “or”...

I don’t know if I’m gunna hunt the hilltop blind are the creek bottom stand.

Not only is it how they type it, it’s how they say it as well.

Not sure OP.

However, there typically are a lot of people around seeking advise.

Probably the most common posted here- sell/sale, hear/here; and advise/advice
