    GAH, all this coke stuff is driving me nuts. Coke is the nickname for one specific brand of soda, COCA-COLA, you can't go around calling all types of sodas COKE. Thats just not right.

    I KNOW and that's why I'm trying to change to Soda... Soda sounds so fun and Soda deffo sounds more tasty than Coke.. sounds more sweet!

    Re: Your word for soft drinks

    Since I live in Mexico just below the border of USA, a lot of words we use are spanglish (words made from spanish and english) and a lot others are just the same (but pronounced as if in spanish), so we say soda, because at the south of USA the sey it that way.

    But when you go to a restaurant (or a taqueria for that purpose) if you want a cola drink you say the brand (Coca cola or Pepsi), and if you want some other, like orange or strawberry, you say it generally speaking unless you really like a brand (that is not that common), so you ussually ask for a orange soda or strawberry soda ("soda de naranja o soda de fresa"). Here no one serves Dr. Pepper and such (and I damn all for that), but when you buy it at a shop just call it by its name.

    At the other hand, to the center of the country they´re not called soda, they´re called "refrescos" ("refreshers"), and for cutting it "chescos".

    Nobody says coke (here they say coca, but they´re refering to a cola beverage, and it´s almost not used as much).

    Re: Your word for soft drinks

    Coke is just Coca Cola isn't it? It would be wrong to call even other Cola-ish drinks (Pepsi, Jolt etc.) Coke.

    Anyway, I probably say soda, I guess. I don't use the word in English very often because I don't have to. When I'm abroad and order something I usually just say "I'll have a *brand*" not "I'll have a soda". But that's the word I use if I do use it.

    Jeez, you guys have too many words for this. Here in Sweden it's "läsk" anywhere you go.

    Re: Your word for soft drinks

    Where I'm from people say coke when referring to soft drinks in general. Like someone will say "Do you want some water, milk, or a coke?" And when you say coke they will ask "What kind?" That's when you say Mountain Dew or actually Coke or whatever.

    Soft drink and soda are only on labels and menus, and the only time we say pop is when we are shooting fire crackers

    And fizzy drink is never said....ever lol

    Wow, that would piss me off.

    "Do you want some water, milk, or a coke?"
    "I'll have a coke."
    "What kind?"
    *thinking waitor is referring to Diet Coke or whatever* "I'll just have the regular one."
    "The regular what?"
    "Coke."
    "Yes, but what kind?"

    lol its not as bad as it sounds when you are raised that way. Most people will just say give me a Mountain Dew or Dr. Pepper.

    Like I said, its mostly just used for generalizations. Like if you send someone to the store. "Get some cokes!" And they just buy all kinds of drinks lol

    Re: Your word for soft drinks

    I usually say 'Soda', I used to call every coke colored soft drink 'coke' when I was a kid. That only happened with Cola and Pepsi though.
    And I'd say '7-up' when I wanted the actual 7-up or Sprite.
    But yeah, I say 'Soda.'
