I grew up calling it Soda, once I met some people from western PA I realized, not all people do. So which do you use? Or perhaps where ever you're from you have a completely different moniker.
:D

Edit: for those who want to take this waaaaay too literally, I'm talking about Soft Drinks in general, not just Coke/Pepsi etc....

I grew up in southern New Jersey and northern Delaware. I call it soda. :p

Soft drink.

Well, technically I call each brand as it's named. I don't really use general terms, but when I do (Very rarely) I use soft drink. :p

So you actually say "I'm gonna go get a Soft Drink"?

Soft drink. Coke for Cola, but here calling it coke will mean something different..

lara c. fan
03-11-10, 17:01

Extremely rarely. I think I said that twice, when I was younger. Then I learnt all the brands, and just started calling them by their name.

03-11-10, 17:03
I usually call it by the name, like Cola or Fanta (even if it's not the real brand, if it's brown it's Cola and if it's yellow it's Fanta :ton:). In Dutch people say 'prik' or 'prik limonade' as well.

tomblover
03-11-10, 17:04
I call it by name. Although of course, Pepsi/Coke go by the general name "cola" if I do not know exactly. :p

Otherwise, I say "soda", "fizzy drink" or "soft drink". It varies, depending on what term I remember first. XD

In Swedish, I believe "soda" refers to carbonated water. We call it "läsk". :p

Coke for coca-cola. Or as a general term, fizzy drink. But otherwise, I call fizzy drinks by the brand name.

I call Coke Coke... technically its fizzy drink. But that refers to Coke, Ginger Beer, 7up, Pepsi, Doctor Pepper, Shandy, Fanta, Tango, Sparkling Water ect


I would label it under 'soft drinks'. In resturants... Its under soft drinks.

I've never called them soda or pop, used to be fizzy drinks when I was a kid.

I'm pretty sure some British kid's comics like The Beano used to call it pop tho.

larson n natla
03-11-10, 17:15
Neither

Its either - I'm going to get a can of 'insert brand name'

Or I'm going to get a drink of 'insert brand name'

Soda and Pop just sound weird in an English accent.

Here in Kuwait people call soft drinks by their names not "pop" or "soda". :p

"S-O-D-A, Soda" cookie for whoever can guess where that's from :p

But yeah I usually just say Soda, I know people call it pop up here in Washington- just doesn't sound right to me :p When I know the brand I call it by that though.

Fizzy drinks are drinks that are fizzy. Soft drinks are drinks that are not.

Unless it's a specific brand. Something like SunKist, I would call "soda"
Something like Coca-Cola I would call "coke"

Because restaurants are stupid and up themselves?
I was taught that soft drinks are all the drinks that aren't fizzy. If that's wrong, blame the archaic education system that taught me nearly thirty years ago ;)

No:)

Usually I'll referred to the individual drinks by their brand names, but if I'm generalising, I'll refer to them as fizzy drinks.

We call "pop" or "soda" fizzy wizzy drinky pop over here.

toxicraider
03-11-10, 17:47
I only say the name of the drink.
If I wanted to refer to the carbonated drinks in general, I'd say fizzy drinks, or soft drinks.

As I was taught, I think that every drink with no alcohol was a soft drink. :p
That's what I usually mean by it. Anything non-alcoholic apart from water, mill drinks, hot drinks, juices and squashes, could be a soft drink. It gets confusing though, when you consider alcopops like WKD which are more like fizzy drinks than alcoholic drinks.

You must feel so smart making pointless personal jabs in a light hearted thread, seriously, I don't know why everyone doesn't do it.

I have lived and traveled all over the US (and a lot of the world). Here in Chicago (and much of the midwest) it is known as pop. In many other locations in the US it is soda, or soda pop. Strangely in many places in the south you ask for a coke, even if you want a 7-UP or something else. It's funny when they ask you what kind of coke do you want. :)

When I am overseas I generally ask for the specific drink, or ask what soft drinks they carry. Although usually I would be trying a local wine, beer or other alcoholic beverage.

Anyway someone mentioned refresco in here. It's like the best "soft drink" (soda) I ever tasted.

03-11-10, 18:21
Yes here (Spain) are also called generically: "refresco" = "soda".
The dictionary translates it as "soda" but actually means "something refreshing" or "someting cool".

But that's just the generic term. If we want a drink, we ask specifically what. But you can say "I fancy a drink" or "I fancy a soda" (traslated for you all)


If someone hears the word "soda" here, then, most of people are thinking specifically in a tonic.

So does that mean that "Defresco" would be something really... unrefreshing (like drinking gravy)?

I love language, and I also love the translations and how they appear to the "other" side. If you went into a local store here in Chicago and said "I fancy a drink" they would probably laugh out loud. Yes, we are quite crude here in the Windy City... :)

BoyTRaider

I learned to call it "Soda", but I generally do call it by their names.

People are saying here that in America we are calling Cokes sodas..

Soda is not just the name used for coke but it's in general terms to a carbonated beverage. So in terms, anything carbonated with flavor would be considered "soda" in most parts of US.

Not just Coke as some of you outside of the US pointed out. Lol

No, that's not exist. Defresco is a invented word without any mean.

"Refresco" come from "Refresh" (refreshment) but you can not add that prefix: "un".

I could imagine it. I thought: this sentence seems pretty barbie :confused::D


We say too (as Kz Mraz said) "a can", translated: "una lata" (una lata de coca cola, una lata de fanta, una lata de cerveza....)


EDITbtw/ here no body drinks Mr Peeper :confused:

Liara
03-11-10, 18:32
I used to think that "soda" was technically that fizzy bottled water you can buy and "soda pop" was the soft drink we're familiar with.

Anyway, I rarely used "soda", I just call it by whatever brand name I'm referring to.

Growing up in Dallas, we said Coke for everything. Coke=soft drink. Now, you might wind up with something else in your hand, but you wanted a Coke.

Usually said like this, "I'm goan go git a Coke."

Twenty years with a Midwesterner, and "soda" is now part of my vocab.

Soft drink, or I'm gonna get a brand of coke. I have said pop before, ,ainly the noise when the drink is fizzy, it pops.

Or I say fizzy drink.

But bearing in mind most drinks isnt fizzy, so its a soft drink.

Soda. But where I live right now, everyone calls a soda here a coke, even though it may not be a a coke/Coca Cola.

Neither. I call a drink by its specific name when ordering.

God, I sound like a Borg drone. A thirsty borg drone. :pi:

Brus.

Soda when I lived in Washington, where everyone else called it pop.
I had actually NEVER heard the word relating to drinks before arriving there. Never!
They always call it soda in movies and on TV.

SODA

My mom uses pop and it has always ****ed me off... :vlol:

Both soda and pop annoy me tbh. Soda makes me think of soda water, which is quite foul on it's own. Pop sounds like a word someone under twelve would use... I realise this is quite judgemental as it's a difference in language, but ah well! :pi:

"I want a Coke, please."

"What kind?"

"Diet Pepsi"
