If you are a native of East Tennessee, ever read any of Bert Vincents columns in the Knoxville News – Sentinel, or familiarized yourself with the history of the Read House Hotel in downtown Chattanooga you may know the definition of the word “Hant.”

If you have immigrated from the North, you are probably unfamiliar with the term.

However, any Southern native connected to any of the three above sources and being over the age of thirty would know that “Hant” is a variation of the word “haunt:”

1.     It means to appear in the form of a ghost; or

2.     A memory that keeps popping up and won’t go away.

If you are skeptical about the validity of the term show your bravery and courage by asking to be put in Room 311 at the Read House that allegedly has its own private apparition of a dead person in residence!
