Lol it sounds wierd because you could say
"im having some coke"
which is very disturbing in which way you take it lool
But yes I call fizzy drinks....JUNK!!!
even though I drink it shame on me!
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).
when i was a small kid i use the word "coke" for any types of carbonated drinks..
(but now i know the word has lots of meaning )
soda is much nicer to hear
Soda for sure.
when i learned soft drink was soda , i never heard pop, and coke is coca cola
i call it limonad (engl. lemonade).
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.
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
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
Yeah, I call it COKE.
i chose other since i call it different names depending on what country the person is from (like if they are from USA i call it soda, UK Soft Drink etc.)
