Wisconsin Words Comparison Maps
Do Wisconsinites drink pop or soda? Is lutefisk still around? Does Wisconsin not only fight over the remote control but what to call it? We have the answers! We mapped a small sample of words used in Wisconsin in a few different ways. We wanted to compare change over time, to show variation of word usage within the state, and to show a few linguistic topics of interest—pronunciations and tag questions. All maps were produced by Evan Applegate at the UW–Cartography Lab. We also have a downloadable version of the maps available in a pdf format.
