The United States of America is a country that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to Pacific Ocean. With this vast territory comes different types of words that have the same meaning. Buggie, cart, beanie, toboggan, soda, pop, you guys, y’all, cut on the lights, and turn on the lights; just using one of these words or phrases normally labels where a person is from in the U.S.
