Well, I say peh-khan, and I guess I'm weird all the way around because I generally dont say/use the rest, except coke, either where I grew up until 15 or where I have lived since then.

I'm from Wisconsin, and I say everything pretty much like a Wisconsinite, according to the map.

The one exception is pecan, which I've always pronounced as pick-AHN.

One other weird Wisconsin anomaly: we're the only state I'm aware of that has no drinking fountains. Everyone there calls them "bubblers." (Many of the fountains at one time were made by Kohler, a Wisconsin company, which branded them as bubblers. The name stuck.)

Pretty much like on the map here, too.

In high school, we used to "go get a coke", which really meant hanging out with friends - for years now I've called it soda when I have to name it, but hardly ever do because I rarely ever drink it or buy it.

I think PeeCan is something a truck driver uses.
