Here in Montana we do things differently than in other places.  It makes us unique, most cool kids had their own lingo in school.  Just living in Montana means your part of our lingo.  We don't talk or speak like people in other states.

Just take the word Montana.  For some people Montana means big state in the middle of nowhere with hardly any people. But if your from Montana it has a whole different meaning.  Giant mountains, stretching plains, outdoor actives and amazing wildlife.  31 words that mean something different in Montana.  I've picked my favorite five below.

    To people not from Montana a quick way to get from one place to another.  In Montana, trips measured in hours spent on uncrowded roadways travelling much faster than one should between two towns.
