I know that soup is considered a dish, not a beverage, so a phrase like "drink soup" sounds odd accordingly, and it should be rephrased like "eat soup", right?
My question is how you would describe the motion like the one in the above picture if the content of the bottle were soup. I have this question because in my country, canned soup like vegetable soup and corn potage soup are not rare. They are sold at many supermarkets here and there, and even on vending machines sometimes.
The picture above is just an example of canned vegetable soup.
At this post of the ELL StackExcahnge, Hellion answers:
- using a utensil (fork, spoon, chopsticks, etc.): then you eat it.
- pouring it from a container into your mouth: then you drink it.
- sucking it up through a straw: then you drink it.
If his definitions above are the general understanding for many native speakers, then I thought a phrase like "drink canned corn potage soup" must be appropriate.
What do you think?
