Coke isn't a term, it's a brand. And I voted for pop, which is the most common of the phrases here.

Yes you're right, but some parts of the country (USA), mostly the south call it Coke (even Pepsi they call Coke).

Here's a nifty graphic. This is the nifty graphic I promised.
I wasn't aware of that. How interesting. But how dare they tarnish the good name of Pepsi with the term "Coke"!

Kidding, of course. I like'em both.

Yeah, lee1978, I remember that.

Lemonade - Pop. In general of soft drinks, we call it fizzy drinks.

Most of the time we call it by the brands.

QUOTE(shaunj66 @ Feb 3 2009, 10:32 PM) I call them "fizzy" drinks. But of course, you ask for them by name. And I very rarely have any carbonated drinks except the occasional coke or Dr. Pepper.

oh you

Generally when in the British pubs you hear brand names mostly, or lemonade.

Growing up, soda was baking soda, pop was your dad. We called 'em drinks or co-cola (as a generic term for cola) unless you wanted something particular, then we'd call it by the brand name. A lot of it was context, if you were going to the gas station for drinks, and somebody wanted a drink and a pack of peanuts, then that drink would be Pepsi, because peanuts go good with Pepsi (you pour the peanuts right into the bottle.)

So, in short, drinks.

I usually call them by name but if I'd have to speak in general term then I'd say soda.

Or if you want the Swedish term for it: "Läsk".

^ yeah, my dad talks about going to gas stations and getting pepsi's and peanuts, but apparently it doesn't work so good anymore cause they use high fructose corn syrup instead of sugar.
