Sloppy Words For Yours

a: Colloquialism ~
b: dialect and is used in conversational

What: "Colloquialism is like dialect and is used normally in conversational or informal writing. Especially in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, colloquialism goes well with this time period and being in the south. Pretty much every character uses some type of colloquialism, Jim probably the most. It can a bit confusing when reading it with saying it in your mind how it was meant to be said. Like when Jim asks Huck, "Is dey out o' sight yit?" you wouldn't have much of an idea what they were saying if you didn't include their accents and if you didn't have knowledge of the time period."
