How everyone pronounces pecan and carmel

I thought about the podcast when I saw these maps that show how different parts of the US pronounce words differently. Of course the maps showing carmel and pecan stuck out the most since debate on these words seems to come up on the show. Funny!

Thanks for posting that. The maps are really interesting! I say pecan both of the common ways, I think because I grew up in one area, but my dad is from another and he pronounces it differently.

Very cool!! I especially like the "soda" vs. "pop" line which is very accurate. I crossed the "soda" line into the "pop" line for college and had a heck of a time!

I live in "pop" land now! Though they missed that certain portions of Boston call soda "tonic", but it is a very local thing.

There were some very interesting ones, but I have to tell you we used "bubbler" in central Massachusetts growing up, though we used "drinking fountain" as well.

I often tell the story of being in college in Albany, NY. This friend of mine who was also from Massachusetts (near Worcester whereas I was from near Springfield) comes bolting down the hall into my room screaming:

"Pete! Pete! What do you call those things that you get drinking water from"

I sais "A Bubbler."

A look of relief spreads across his face: "Oh thank god, they all thought I was crazy!"

Apparently he had called it a Bubbler amongst a group of friends and they looked at him like he'd grown another head.

A couple more I could see they could've done:
"Yard Sale" vs "Garage Sale" vs "Tag Sale" (the third one seems to be a New England thing.)
In Massachusetts also we don't buy our booze from a liquor store...we go to the "package store".

We spent every summer in Colorado during my childhood years. When my sister and I became friends with the little girl next door and she offered us pop. Not having heard that word before I was pretty sure she was offering us an illegal drug lol! My big sister saw the look of fear and confusion on my face and explained what it was.

i went the other way - from pop to soda land for university....and man did they make fun of me...
i was pretty much the ONLY person in the entire university who said pop (almost 100% of the students were from the east coast).....
(every time i said pop, someone would chime in "where's ma"? yeah, it got old over 4 years)...

Being the fourth generation Texas that I am, from Dallas, we say coke for everything-never pop or soda. Pecan is "Pecon" with the e being a soft sound.

I remember doing spring break when in college and there were many northern folks always in Mexico around the same time. They got me from saying y'all to you guys very quickly and it has always stuck. Ha Ha!!!!

Garage sale seems to be the going term in the south. I like Yard Sale better though since we don't have a garage.

I'm a "pop", but married a "soda". We both say pee-can. The sale one is funny. Around here it depends where it is....in your garage is a garage sale, in your yard is a yard sale. We are hoagie country, too. Unless it's a "sub" from Subway, because it's not called "hoagieway".

Being a deep south LA girl, we say 'pecawn', 'soda/cold drink', 'garage sale', 'y'all', 'poboys', 'water fountains', 'carmal', etc.

The first time I heard someone say 'pee-can' for pecan 'pecawn' I nearly died laughing before I could stop myself - still find it mighty funny being from the land of lots of pecans.

It's Puh-cahn. Pee-can is something else altogether..

Care-ah-mel don't know why, it just is.

Grew up in South Philadelphia, where we say "wooder" instead of water. How do I say pecan? Pea-con. Carmel= car-mull.

And hoagies! Yum! And it's "cheesesteak," not 'Philly steak-and-cheese.'
