15 Words Only People From Nebraska Will Understand

Everyone grows up hearing the common terms used by their families and friends. It isn’t until we get older that we realize not everyone uses the same words or knows about the same stuff. If you happen to be from Nebraska, though, chances are you’ll know what just about all of these mean.

Nebraska is a pretty big state, and regional dialects produce all sorts of different pronunciations and hotly debated differences in terms (don’t get two Nebraskans started on whether it’s called “soda” or “pop,” or “creek” or “crick”). One writer can’t possibly cover all of the uniquely Nebraskan words – what are some of your favorites?
