And in the further evolution of language, over here a cell/mobile is now more often than not simply a "phone," while the cord-bound creature that sits on my kitchen counter, still connected to the grid by wire rather than radio signals, is a "landline."

So when did "pudding" become a specific type of dessert? Has it always been in the US? Was it so in AR's time, and he is using a specific era/demographic's language for the purpose of establishing his setting?
