Myse’ll

15 Feb

I heard a long-forgotten Pictou County word tonight.

‘Myse’ll’ is a double mispronounced false contraction (and I should know because I just made that term up).  It’s halfway between ‘may as well’ and ‘might as well.’  And conveniently half as long.

The sentence I heard it in: ‘I myse’ll leave.’
