  •  So much for my age theory then. (0+ / 0-)

    I learned Alabamans from Mrs. Hollis in first grade and don't remember any contradiction until I was in college (in Mississippi). Could be just my area (Birmingham)  or the school or the teacher.

    Wiktionary indicates that Alabama newspapers prefer Alabamian (agreed), but Google brought up a Wall Street Journal headline with Alabaman. Perhaps Mrs. Hollis was a closet Yankee?!

    Some Urban Dictgionary entries popped up, too :)

    •  Well, maybe down here in Mobile (0+ / 0-)

      ... we're just a little different from you "Northerners" up in Birmingham.;) And I've spent so much time working for newspapers that might explain it.
