  • Probably a contraction for "nary a one," as in "I went looking for ramps yesterday but there was nar'n to be had." This is commonly heard in eastern and central North Carolina but I have never seen it in print. I have no idea if this is how it's spelled. (Or should I say spelt?) It rhymes with "cairn."
