I'm from Baton Rouge and I can't stand when people spell go like that. The spelling has even made it to our government -- the website that Louisianians use to register to vote and get election information is www.geauxvote.com

TWO hurricanes slammed into Louisiana in 2005: Katrina and Rita. Also a bayou is never a marshy lake. It may flow into a marshy lake or swamp or it may flow through a wetland, but it is a small, slow-moving, muddy river.

Tabasco is not a brand, it's a variety. McIlhenny, for example, is a brand.

It's definitely a brand. It may also be a variety, but most people that live in Louisiana would refer to it as the brand. If you were to ask for Tabasco Sauce at a restaurant, they may reply that they don't carry it, but that they carry Crystal (Or Louisiana) hot sauce instead.

Can you possibly accept Catrina? They're basically two ways to spell the same name...

I wouldn't have thought so, no. The hurricanes are basically named in alphabetical order, so the fact it began with 'K' was significant.

A Bayou, is actually a river that flows in both directions depending upon outside factors such as weather and tides. It does not have to be marshy, and it can move swiftly, slowly, or stand still at different times. Many bayous in Louisiana (and elsewhere in the world) look like rivers, and have no marsh grasses, Cypress trees, etc. in them. They may pass through swamps or marshes.

Not necessarily. Creole in Louisiana can indicate and include Spanish ancestry as well as French. Cajun is exclusively French.
