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.
