What do you call soft ice like thick soup in the salt water?

In some languages there are two verbs "to be." (In Spanish, for example, "ser" is used for permenent conditions, while "estar" is used for continuing or temporary ones.) This is a little like what we have in some varieties of English, though not in Standard English. You are right that some other kinds of English have it: certain forms of African-American English have a similar distinction to what we see in these forms of Newfoundland English.
