A '''butte''' {{IPAc-en|b|juː|t}} is an isolated hill with steep, often vertical sides and a small, relatively flat top; buttes are smaller than [[mesa]]s, [[plateau]]s, and [[Table (landform)|table landform]]s. In some regions, such as the [[Midwestern United States]] and [[Northwestern United States]], the word is used for any hill. The word butte comes from a [[French language|French]] word meaning "small hill"; its use is prevalent in the [[Western United States]], including the [[Southwestern United States|southwest]], where "mesa" is also used. Because of their distinctive shapes, buttes are frequently landmarks in plains and mountainous areas.

In differentiating mesas and buttes, geographers use the rule that a mesa has a top that is wider than its height, while a butte has a top that is narrower than its height.<ref>{{cite web | title=Mesa and Butte | work=Science Clarified | year=2008 | url=http://www.scienceclarified.com/landforms/Faults-to-Mountains/Mesa-and-Butte.html| accessdate=2008-06-30}}</ref>
