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? Tim Frazer
