Larry Zelisko is a columnist and the content editor at the Abilene Reporter-News. His column, "Larry The Answer Guy," responds to reader-submitted questions on a wide range of topics.
Today a reader asked, "I always hear people pronounce "drought" as "drouth." Are there two separate words that mean the same thing?"
"Some of the regional dictionaries say it is a term that is heard mainly in the south and mainly among older people," Zelisko said.
