Are sweet corn, sugar corn, and green corn synonyms or something slightly different? Is Indian corn obsolete or just archaic? I'm marking it obs. until somebody knows better. — Hippietrail 15:20, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

"non-US"[edit]

I don't think the term maize is necessarily not used in the US. I've seen it used in US text books to mean what US citizens would otherwise call corn. I think it's more that the term corn is used in the US only to mean maize. Theshibboleth 20:20, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

In Russian also "маис" [mai:s] is used - in Latin American cultural context.
