If You Use This Slang Word, You're Probably From Oklahoma


There is that one word you can say and people around the U.S. can identify exactly what state you're from. For example, the word "hella" is mainly used in Northern California, and that is usually a dead giveaway that people are from the west coast state.

If you've ever wondered what word is associated with your state, Stacker released a list of slang words unique to each state.

Here is what Stacker had to say about finding each state's slang word:

Americans also have massive amounts of state pride. They celebrate the things that set their states apart from others, and feverishly uphold local traditions and customs. Combined, these two things have resulted in some unique slang. Stacker has rounded up examples of local slang from every state. Taking data from various sources, we've highlighted some of the weird, wacky, and outright crazy slang words Americans use in everyday conversations.

So what slang word sets Oklahomans apart? Quakenado

Here's what Stacker had to say about the term

A more recent addition, quakenado was only added to the Oklahoma lexicon in 2011. A quakenado happens when an earthquake and tornado take place at the same time, which happened in November 2011. Today, it's often used as a badge of honor for those who lived through the event.
