Date: Tue, 18 Jul 1995 09:30:00 CDT From: Edward Callary Subject: Re: regional differences Shana Walton inquires about the distribution of coke as a general term for what we call 'pop' around here. The temporal and regional expansion of generic coke is related, completely and revealingly, in an article by Tom Murray in the upcoming (September 95) issue of NAMES. If you would care to join the American Name Society for 1996, thus receiving all four issues for 96 (plus other goodies), I will send you a copy of the Sept 95 issue free. Regular memberships are $30. In addition to Murray's 'Coke' article, the September issue contains John Moore's 'Muskogee Personal Names' and Richard Coates' 'The First American Placename in England: Pimlico.' Plus reviews and shorter pieces. If you do join the Society under this arrangement, specify that your dues are for calendar 96. ****************************************************************** Edward Callary Phone: 815-753-6627 Editor, NAMES Fax: 815-753-0606 English Department Internet: TB0EXC1[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] Northern Illinois University DeKalb, Il 60115-2863 ******************************************************************
