I'm just curious ^.^
I generally say pop, but every now and then I catch myself saying soda.

EDIT I seem to have forgotten to include "soft drink" in my haste, and I acknowledge it's also a commonly used term, so please forgive my oversight!

it's not pop, that is the poor way to say it.

it's a difference in vocabulary. pop vs soda is commonly studied in linguistics. I don't think either is considered a poor way of saying it.

Being in the southeast we say "a coke". "Soda", really. A friend of mine always says pop.

In the Southeast it's usually referred to as "Coke" but they could mean anything from Sunkist, Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper etc.

Personally I just refer to it as its given brand name. If I have a Mtn Dew I call it that. If it's a Coca Cola then I'll use Coke.

'soft drinks' on menus. Fizzy drinks are what everyone usually calls them here, or by the name of the brand
'coke' 'fanta' etc

What Amaya- and dotsforlife said.

A Coke is a Coke is a Coke. But I usually just say soda.

One can use the word "pop" for numerous reasons, but "soda" is only useful for fizzy drinks, boxing, and craftworking during panic talks.

I prefer to say, and type, soda.

I use soda quite a bit. When I was younger I referred to every soda as a "coke."

I said soda pop, because I actually use both terms, but separately. I'll say soda one sentence, but in the next say pop. .-.
