Let ‘Er Buck? Wisdom on Wyoming slang sought

(Brendan LaChance, Oil City)

CASPER, Wyo. — Giddy up your language powers Wyomingites. The Office of the Wyoming State Archaeologist is looking for answers.

“Does Wyoming have its own slang?” they asked on Wednesday, Dec. 18. “Wyoming State Archives has been contacted by a reporter from the Chicago Tribune who is writing an article about regional slang and is having trouble finding examples from Wyoming.”

“Can you think of words or phrases that we use here in Wyoming that might confuse or baffle non-locals, or words that when you hear someone say it, you know they are from Wyoming?”

People with ideas about Wyoming slang can comment on the Wyoming State Archaeologist’s Facebook post or share their thoughts with these other organizations:

  • Wyoming State Parks
  • Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office
  • Wyoming State Museum
  • Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund
  • Wyoming Arts Council
