I watched Tarantino's The Hateful Eight and heard the following dialogue between Major Marquis Warren and John Ruth:
- I know you too.
- We shared a steak dinner once upon a time in Chattanooga.
- You John Ruth, the hangman.
- That be me
So for me, John Ruth phrase sounds pretty strange like there is a skipped word like will or would. Is there really a skipped word? If yes why is it skipped? Maybe it's common for dialects?
What is a difference from just "Yes it's me"? I suppose the meaning is the same, but nuances are different. Did John Ruth wish to sound kind of peculiar saying this, or maybe it's just a common way of saying that in the context of the movie?
