A linguistic study: "soda" and "pop" in Wisconsin and Minnesota
MetadataShow full item record
The following linguistic research study was performed to discover language patterns in association with the terms "pop" and "soda." Research was conducted through guided conversation with the subjects. Findings revealed that much of the research conducted in the past coincides with the findings we have tabulated with this project. Research confirmed that the information in the 2002 isogloss developed by Campbell and Plumb was accurate. There has not been a significant shift in the isogloss since 2002, and findings suggest that there may be relevant data for future studies regarding the use of brand specific names being used in place of the terms "pop" and "soda."
