People who travel around the United States sometimes notice that in some regions the locals speak completely different English, which is sometimes incomprehensible. Especially in order to translate some "small-town" words in America, even a five-volume "Dictionary of American Regional English" was published. Now you can go directly to the strange words, using excerpts from this edition.
Whoopensocker (n). Wisconsin - when people see something unique and amazing, but they do not have enough words to express their delight, they use this very word. For example this dance was just whoopensocker :).
Snirt (n.), Midwest - this word means something like this: wind with snow and mud. In addition, you can use an adjective from it - shirty, defining bad weather.
Wapatuli (n.), Wisconsin is a familiar word to many American students, as wapatuli is a homemade alcoholic beverage made from a mixture of something strong (vodka, cognac, whiskey) with another weak or non-alcoholic beverage. In my time, students drank wapatul from vodka with beer ... cheap and quickly takes away.
Jabble (Ch.), Virginia - for example, you are standing in front of the door of your house and have been rummaging through your bag for an hour already, because you cannot find the keys to the apartment there. This is because inside all things are jabble, that is, they are mixed in a heap. It is also sometimes used in conversation to mean "to be embarrassed."
