Next in an ongoing series on York County-isms

Quick: Ex. “Do you want to run to the store quick?” or “Let the dog out quick before we go.”

This is very similar to awhile, in the you drop it on the end of sentences to signify someone should get on about an activity. The funniest thing with quick is that, like “awhile” doesn’t mean to do something for awhile, “quick” doesn’t necessarily mean to do it with any special haste or for a short period of time.

So why do we say to do something “quick”? Don’t know, but I’m open to ideas! And I’m still trying to collect more York County phrases, so if you think of anything, post a comment!
