Is it improper to use the term 'felt of it"... Such as: The sack was on the table. The girl reached down and felt of it.

Should it be just 'felt it' and not 'felt of it'. Doesn't 'felt of it' give a meaning of doing more than just touching it?

We are debating that 'felt of it' is or is not proper English.... ????

Hi,

It's not wrong,

But it's uncommon, literary in tone, almost archaic.

Anonymousreached down and felt of it.
feel of instead of feel is straight from North Carolina. Avoid it. It's a regionalism.
