Southern Word of the Week - Hollar

(v.) Gimme a hollar  the next time you want to go huntin'.

(v.) I think they're gonna break up.  They hollar at each other all the time

(v.) I'll hollar at y'all to come inside when dinner's ready.

To hollar at someone means to "catch them later" or to get back in touch with them soon.  Also can be yelling at someone hatefully or getting the kids inside if there's a storm coming or if dinner is ready.

Sometimes people go down in the hollar for some reason and you can holler at them to come on out of it.
