One sure way to distinguish between a visitor and a local in any city is to listen out for slang terms and slang phrases. Anchorage, Alaska is no different. In some ways, there are even more peculiar expressions used in Alaskan lingo than in American slang because of the Native influence.

(While we're on the subject of Anchorage local language, remember that "Native" is always capitalized.)
