Louisiana Prepositional Usage

I like the prepositional determinacy of this: “It really is quite adorable to watch her pull up her foot stepstool to the place below the cabinet she needs to be in, and climb on top and get it.” From a paper in my Louisiana Folklore course (April 2015). With that as a start, I couldn’t help but notice more familiar uses: “cook down the onions” and “cut up the meat.”
