In May, NPR produced a story about the regional language of America highlighting the words and phrases unique to each of the fifty states as well as different regions of the country.

That got us thinking, "What are the words and phrases that make Montana what it is?"

We compiled 20 or so that we have found to be unique to Montana. By no means is this list comprehensive. If you know of a word, phrase or expression unique to Montana, let us know! Email newsroom@helenair.com with your word or phrase.

H/T to the Dictionary of American Regional English, ToddKlassy.com for their compilations, and another H/T to the staffs of Lee Newspapers of Montana helping to come up with these words.
