Re: mash (potatoes) etc. I like Greg Ward's story about his Greek
luncheonette (I wish I had one of those here in Austin). MY favorite
STORE in Berkeley, when I lived there, was `Canned Foods' (because they
sold $5 and more wines for 99 cents). Anyway here in Austin, and I assume
elsewhere, the supermarket aisle that has canned vegetables etc. is labeled
`can foods'. I realize that this could just be a noun compound, but I have
a feeling that the `can' used to be `canned', like in the name of my Berkeley
store. But then, I'm only an alien.
