the soda line
remember when i was bemoaning the fact that the previous linguistic research i linked did not study the division between those who say soda and those who say pop in the US. well apparently another researcher has done so. further and more appropriately mapping out the use of soda, pop, and the southern “coke”. and you can see the soda line, clearly. check out the surprising pocket of soda sayers centered around st. louis, on the pop / coke border.
