Subject: Re: pop
We have 'pop,' 'soda,' 'soda pop,' and 'soft drink.' What about 'tonic,'
which no one has mentioned. Can anyone tell me the distribution of this
term, which shocked the first time I heard it from a New Hampshire native?
(To me, 'tonic' is medicine, and wouldn't be expected to taste good!)
