A Seattle Lexicon: Blasts from the Past

Find Great Deals on Seattle & Pacific Northwest Posters & Prints

Welcome to A Seattle Lexicon: Lingo From the Far Corner! Follow the Button Links on the left to find lingo, shorthand expressions, nicknames, and slang relative to Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.

Disclaimer: Non-Nortwesterners should use these terms (in the vain hope of fitting in) only at the risk of being greeted by frequent blank stares. While some terms are known by virtually all Northwesterners, and actually spoken by many, others are known only to some or a few, while spoken by even fewer. However, if you hear one said, armed with this lexicon, you'll know what is meant.
