Words up

"19 regional words all Americans should adopt immediately," including this one from my native state:

7. sneetered (v.), Kentucky
If you’ve ever been hoodwinked, duped, swindled, fleeced or scammed, you done been sneetered. The noun version, sniter, refers to that treacherous person responsible for your unfortunate sneetering. Also see snollygoster, a shameless, unscrupulous person, especially a politician.

Go ahead and check out the list -- I'm sure you'll find it's more of a whoopensocker than an arsle.

What is the difference between snookered, a word found in any good dictionary, and sneetered? Is it  that Kentuckians were snookered into thinking their public s chools were adequate?
