Kak•a•lak (kak ' a lak) n. (Colloq.) (various spellings including Cacalacky) 1. A folksy slang for "Carolina"--an amalgamation with "Appalachia". 2. an endearment of the Carolinas, especially by people raised in the area who have moved elsewhere. Conveys a tongue-in- cheek quality, a willingness to laugh at oneself and one's origins, while still remaining proud and affectionate towards them.
I live in South Kakalak and work in North Kakalak.
