    Pop obviously because I'm from Iowa, but like Clones21 I don't drink it anymore either.

    I actually say both pop and soda, just depends on what mood I am in.

    used to say pop growing up in Iowa, but have said soda ever since moving to KC in 1999. soda stayed with me everywhere else I have lived (Indiana, St. Louis). I think pop is very much a northern term.

    Anyone have an example of "other"?

    Also, I lived in Houston for a time and I never heard anyone generically refer to soda as "coke".

    I think that's more of a Mississippi/Alabama/Georgia thing, that area anyways. I suppose "cola" could be an other.

    Same here, but I want to punch those that say coke when it is not a coca cola.

    Take a look at that map. Texas is almost all coded in "coke".

    Oh my bad, I didn't even notice the link. I guess I associate it with the Alabama/Georgia region then.

    Re: Do you say soda, pop, or coke?

    Before moving to Maryland in 2006 it was 100% pop for me. When I lived in Maryland from 2006-2008 started as pop then eventually turned into soda. Now that I have moved back to Nebraska I say both. I also have an aunt that lives in Dallas and they say "coke" quite often.
