阿肯色苔草属 (Arkansas Carex): 贴吧为植物学愣人了.

新修 2009天4月11日!


您好。我美国人。我学阿肯色苔草属(色苔草属:Carex)。This page is page one of several similar pages.

This new page is new has several similar parts. I designed these pages for students in the US from China. China sends about 300,000 students a year to the US. Most earn advanced degrees. We send about 60,000 students to China each year. Most study the Chinese language. This part of my website provides my Chinese friends with information about living in the US, especially about Fayetteville, Arkansas.

This page is a fun page. It will contain interesting stories about Arkansas and some Arkansas slang. For example, my wife's stepmother and her biological grandmother grew up in Arkansas, as did Sheila my wife. I will tell some about our family history here.

Peckerwood: when I first heard this slang term I thought it was a bad word. I was wrong. My teacher was the one using it in high school. He would say "you peckerwoods need to pay attention in class". He called us peckerwoods. What is a peckerwood? It is a slang term used in Arkansas used to refer to a person who either works in a sawmill or cuts wood for a living. Either way, it does not mean woodpecker, which is a type of bird that pecks on wood. A peckerwood is usually a poorly educated person who works with tree harvesting and cutting. The word is sometimes used to mean a stupid or uneducated person, like my teacher was using it. It was like saying "you dummies, you idiots, you should pay attention!
