1I grew up saying pop, but by the age of 22 soda became the phrase. On a small significant note, my fiance at the time was raised in Ohio, and if I remember correctly he spawned my name for the beverage
1Usually distinguish soda as any clear non-cola beverage, carbonated (7-up, sprite, mountain dew, flavored mineral water, etc.). Pop generally refers to a cola[-like] beverage (such as Pepsi, coke, Mr. Pibb, Dr. Pepper, RC Cola, etc.). But in general, pop is the more generic term of the two. Sometimes hear the term "soda pop" as well...
1I grew up saying pop. My grandpa calls it soda pop, but that always makes me think there is ice cream involved. I didn't realize this was a controversy until I went to college with a lot of peope from California and they all thought it was funny that Oregonians say pop. When ordering at a restaurant I always specify the brand. My uncle always says, "I'll have a coke." Which annoys me because the waiter will then say, "We don't have coke, is Pepsi fine?" Sometimes with my friends we'll joke around and say, "Sew-duh" or "Soder."
1All of the above
