Subject: Re: plugs and fruit
My wife, who grew up in N. Florida, and stayed in the South (at UNC and
Mercer) until the age of 27, just now said she like to peel tangerines and
eat the "plugs." She isn't sure she remembers right, but thinks that is
what she alwyas called the sections of the tangerines. Anybody else
encountered this? Is it regional or idiolectal?
