Wednesday Words-day: Road trip edition

During a recent drive to Florida and back, I noticed this road sign, which gave me something to think about while driving a LONG time.  I imagined the lexicographical possibilities:

  • “Canadys”:  plural noun, perhaps Deep Southern for “more than one Canada” or “more than one Canadian.”  Examples:  “I didn’t know there were two Canadys.”  Or, “Those Canadys have different ways of playing baseball.

 

  • “Canadys”:  plural noun, perhaps Deep Southern for references to the Kennedy family.  Example:  “Those Canadys sure were a political bunch.”

 

  • “Canadys”:  name of a town in South Carolina that I have no idea how to pronounce.
