    Either just 'soft drinks' or by its actual name.

    Well, in Bulgarian the word "soda" is used for carbonated water, "coke" (the Bulgarian word is "koka") is used only for the drug and "pop" is just a style in music.

    Here we usually call them carbonated/non-alcoholic drinks or use the drink's name.

    I say Soda, pop sounds weird, and Coke is just a brand of soft drinks in my opinion so I wouldn't use that

    Re: Your word for soft drinks

    Soda! I get annoyed by all the others. Pop is just the most annoying sounding, but Coke is the one I least get. Coke is the nickname/shorthand for Coca-cola, why would someone call all soda Coke when its already the name for a specific brand, I just think that one is really dumb.

    Re: Your word for soft drinks

    well, i live in Texas, and I don't know about you all, but like everyone i know just says 'coke.' like at a restaurant it's the first thing the waitress asks and it's the first thing everybody asks for. sprite, pepsi, fantaand whatever else there is comes second.

    i have a friend who says 'pop' and it annoys the heck outta me!!! shes from Minnesota. it just sounds weird to me, i guess.

    I'll say soda too, but only when someone isn't serving coke :]

    lol, see thats my problem with people calling all soda Coke. Coke is the shorthand name for Cocacola, you can't use a name thats for one specific drink to describe them all, lol. Now I can understand if thats all anyone wants is Cocacola so they ask for a coke, but you can't refer all drinks by that name. Soda is broad name for all drinks, its just the most obvious and realistic choice. Pop works for that same principle but it just sounds too weird. lol.

    Re: Your word for soft drinks

    I always say "coke" but I soo wanna say soda or just cold drink like they do in South Africa..

    I guess i've been influenced by American TV-shows... they always say coke instead of soda!

    Re: Your word for soft drinks

    I say "coke " as well. Where I live no one says " you want pop" or " what soda drink are you buying?" It's usually coke all the time. I remember once when my mate bought Sprite and he said "this coke is nice"

    That may explain the hyperness
