  • quieten!

    April 9, 2008

  • As in "Y'all quiet'n down so I can listen to General Hospital." Commonly used throughout the southern US.

    Actually, I'm not at all sure how this should be spelled. I've always assumed it was a contraction of "quiet on," but I don't recall ever seeing it written. It is pronounced like triton (or chiton, for mollusque's benefit).
