I know. ^^

And this really isn't a pronunciation thing, more like a dialect thing, buuut...

Do you call your carbonated beverages (aka, Mountain Dew, Pepsi, Sprite, etc)...

Pop
Soda
Soda-pop
Or, Coke? (I think I heard that people in North Carolina or something call it coke?)

I say pop, because it makes the most sense. =P

Coke is coca-cola.
Everything else depends on its name.

In general, I call them fizzy drinks.

I say soda, or now and then soda-pop. You ask for a coke up here and you'll get a coca-cola. And if you say pop, well you're going to get some really funny looks Razz
