1Thank you, this is an extremely important topic, and a concern of mine for many years!! This survey will clear up a lot of issues. I use either one depending on who I'm talking to. Soda, for some reason, seems more formal, pop seems like a slang term from where I grew up in Indiana. I think I started using Soda when I moved to Chicago. When our family lived in Hannibal Missouri, the other kids made fun of us when we said "pop". I said, what do you call it? "Sodie-pop or sodie", they would reply. Most people I met when I lived there seemed to confuse "a's" and "i's". For example, they would say Indiani and Missoura. I never quite understood that. If I use Coke it means Coca-cola but no other soft drink. There, I just used soft drink and I didn't even realize it. I never SAY soft drink, I must just use it when I write. Keep up the good work.

1Brand Name
1soft drink (neither pop nor soda is ever used)
1I don't have a generic name.
1soft drink--if you tell me "Coke", I will get you a cola. Nothing personal to users of the other terms! Well, except maybe tonic--sounds like something alcoholic!

1I grew up in Indiana calling it Coke, but after moving to Michigan and being made fun of, I now call it Pop.
1 I call it soda pop not just one term.
1I grew up in Indiana and we always called it Coke (as in "Wanna go out for a Coke?"). When I went to college in St. Louis, I started calling it soda because almost everyone else did. I think that lots of St. Louisans say soda because of all of the New Yorkers who go to school there.

1Pop or Soda are interchangable terms. However, Coke only refers to Coca-Cola.
1IT DOESN'T MATTER and all you people with your long explanations like "miners poured it on rocks and it made a popping noise so it's called pop" have no life and need to get out more. Your stories are all BS so shut up
