    THANK YOU VERY MUCH: EVERYONE! 19 so far, I appreciate this SO much [​IMG]

    So, for school, we are looking at the different ways people pronounce things from across the nation. There are only 4 questions, and I need to find as many people as I can from as many states as possible. So! If you live in the U.S., I could really use your help!

    Here are the questions:

    1) How do you pronounce "caramel". Spell it phonetically for me ("Care-Uh-Mell", "Car-Uh-Mell", "Car-Mell", etc.)

    2) How do you refer to a group of friends all at once?

    3) Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper and Sprite are all ______?

    4) The general name for places where you shop for food is ____?

    Thats it! [​IMG] The results are collected by the entire class, and plotted on a map. I can post the results if anyone is curious.

    If you decide to help me out, please post the following information as well:

    1) Name (it can be a fake one)
    2) Age
    3) Occupation
    4) State you live in

    Thanks in advance anyone kind enough to take the few minutes out of their day to help me [​IMG]

    1. Car-mull
    2. guys
    3. sodas
    4. grocery store (although in usual conversation, that is shortened to just "store.")

    A sentence that wouldn't be unusual here would be: "Hey guys, I'm going to the store to get some soda. Did you know they use car-mull coloring in cola?"

    I can't use this data [​IMG]. If you don't answer all 4, I can't plot your answers, and if you don't give me a state, I have no where to plot them oO. The point of the project is differences across the states [​IMG].

    Thanks anyways [​IMG]. Edit with the rest of the info if you feel comfortable. Anyways, ill be back in 2 hours. Thanks!
