Rochester’s FAVORITE Minnesota Word
I am known for my Minnesota accent any time I travel and it's often because of many of these words! I can't be the only one. So I asked which ones were your favorite Minnesota words and ties at the top for SKOL and UFF-DA came as no surprise.
Here is a little more about these top phrases you should know.
This expression can cover most situations. It could be a response to a surprise, maybe something smells horrible, a word to sum up so many things! The key is to pay attention to tone in order to understand the context it’s being used in.
After a great pre-season win against the Seahawks, this was flowing loudly through my house. If you've been around a Viking fan at all I'm sure you've heard this AND seen it! This Norwegian word used by the Minnesota Vikings actually means “cheers” and “to good health.”
BONUS WORD: O-fer
This wasn't on the original list but someone brought it up and all of the sudden I realized how often I saw this. "Oh for _____". This can come out in so many ways but "Oh for sure" is one I catch myself saying OFTEN! But how about “Oh for cute or Oh for fun.” Whatever word you place at the end, the overall meaning is full of delight and excitement.
