b. 1943, Jackson, Mississippi:
The whole appliance = stove.
The oven = stove or oven.
The hot, round things on the top = burners.
The general space on top = top of the stove.
The other appliance = refrigerator. I guess I must have heard somebody
say "ice box" at some point during my childhood, although I don't associate
that with anybody I remember. I know my parents said "refrigerator." I
think my grandparents also (or at least the two of them still living when
I was born), although I may be wrong about that.
