A lot of people say that folks from the Midwest are some of the nicest around.
Having grown up on the east coast, I can attest to a difference between the people from where I grew up and the people in the Midwest. I’ve sometimes observed a greater sense of friendliness and closeness in the middle of America than where I came from. That is only my experience, of course, but many others have said the very same thing!
Those same friendly folks also have developed a little subset of language to go around with their cheery personalities. The slang that comes out of the Midwest is ever-so fun, and I bet you that if you didn’t grow up with it, you’ll wish you had!
These 11 Midwest slang terms are sure to bring all Midwesterners back to their childhood, especially if they have since moved away. They’re also guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face, no matter where they came from.
