If its less than100 cubits its a spring, if it runs down the middle of a haller its a crick, but if it doesn't end up over there yonder its got to be a branch creek unless its over 16 furlongs, then its a creek. It caint be no other ways ain't y'all read the good book any ways.

Depends on the name. Whatever rolls off the tongue better. Salt crick, Stevens Creek, indian crick, bear Creek.

Brooks run clean and clear, we don't have those around here grin

8117 Steve R is absolutely correct, depends on who we are talking to crick or creek can be used. In my class room students can be equally divided.

I'm with loosey. Whatever rolls off the tongue better.

There were 2 that were about 20 miles apart. One was Indian crick. The other was Jacobs creek.

If I'm just talking in generalities it's crick. "I'm going down to the crick."

My wife everything is creek.

But she also pronounces the hard "G" on the end of words. You going huntinG? You going fishinG? You going trappinG?

I live on Town Creek road but I trap in the crick. Fall Creek is a small town near by and the school sports teams are the crickets, not the creekets!

Crick ,Creek , if its running slow its a trickle, but mostly Brook here in CT. We use all four. Brook must be a northeast thing.

^^^^^^^^^^

This !!!

But, hereabouts............they're ALL started by a cow and therefore............... crick.

Think about this, too.............. When a situation is hopeless and there's just NO WAY you're gonna have a good outcome.......... are you up - Creek without a paddle ???? Are you up - Brook without a paddle ???

I rest my case.

That would be Creak

A small stream in these parts is a Creek. And I agree with the above. Never heard of someone up a brook without a paddle.

This thread is funny.
I use both. I'm almost certain there's no formal definition between crick and creek as far as running water goes.
The correct answer is, Yes.

I believe if I asked a farmer here if I could trap his crick he would slap me backwards.

What ya'll call a crick or a brook we call a ditch. Only has water in it when it rains

Something that actually flows is a creek!!


Gotta live up to the nickname...

Never seen a creek spelled 'crick' on a map, but lots of people say both. Either way is good around here
