Date: Wed, 6 Dec 1995 07:51:58 -0600 From: Cynthia Bernstein Subject: Re: pop and soda One of my students (from Alabama) reports that she used to work for her father at a convenience store. He had told her to expect a delivery from the Coke man. Later, when he asked whether the delivery had been made, she replied that only the RC man had come. Even though the student and her father both used Coke to mean any soft drink, there was some confusion in this instance. Cynthia Bernstein Dept. of English Auburn University, AL 36849-5203
