Landsman: Alternative for flatlander, dirtsider. Often used to refer to apprentice spacers who weren't born into spacer families. The moniker seldom persists past demonstrable acclimation to shipboard life and micro-G environs.

"That addlepated landsman is right fortunate to berth in an interior compartment... they'd probably try to sleep with an open window, otherwise."
