Hawkism


Pronunciation: ho’kiz’um
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle Hillbilly & Late White Trashian; from Middle Hillbilly howgism, from Late White Trashian trailer vernacular, from Spanish trasho del blanco, from French trasche blanche

1. A catch phrase commonly used by White Sox announcer Ken Harrelson.
2. Standard parlance of an incompetent hillbilly; staple of stylized speech patterns associated with South Carolinian trailer communities; used to "describe" an event (or even a sequence of events) without uttering more than 8 or 9 syllables; in essence, a substitute for original thought.
