Languages vary over time and place as you know. So I want to know what you call Coke, sprite, 7 up, mountain dew etc.
Pop?
Sodapop?
Coke?
Softdrink?

In southern Ontario, we call them pop. :D

I call coke, coke and sprite, sprite. But when I use general terms, I switch back and forth from soda to pop. A majority of people in the south, in the U.S., say soda, while people in the north tend to say pop. It varies of course.

I've always used soda as the generic term.

What about other things that people would use different names for depending on their region? Like sub sandwiches. I say subs, but other people might say hoagies or grinders, etc.

Soda for me. I never understood calling it "pop"; it always sounds rediculous when people calli it that.

I'm also from upstate New York, and where I live we call it pop. I know people from Rochester area who call it pop, but that is not what we use in the far north.

I've noticed that. I've from the north so I grew up saying pop. Now that I've moved south I find myself saying soda more often because that's what I hear all the time.

Soda is the general term that I use. When I'm being specific then I just use the actual name of the drink in question.
