From The Well It's About Time Department. The Great Pop vs. Soda Controversy

Using the World Wide Web to gather and process data from across English-speaking North America, I intend to plot the regional variations in the use of the terms "Pop" and "Soda" to describe carbonated soft drinks.

And a valuable resource it is. Heh. Go to Chicago and say anything other than "pop" and you'll get laughed out of town. Come to Central Illinois and say anything other than "sodie" and you get a blank stare. Seriously.
