When most people think of cowboys, they also think of an Appalachian dialect. Record yourself saying something (whether it be a monologue, song lyrics, poem, etc.) and replace words such as "you guys" "uh", a.k.a. typical American space words, with words like "ya'll" "yee-haw". Watch as your simple monologue turns into the rooty tooty speech of the West!
