RE: How do YOU Pronounce it?
Pop always reminds me of the noise balloons make when they explode.

So I use the term soda, because the notion of drinking a sound effect blows my mind.

Soda or soft drink, same same.

Your thread reminded me of this:

How do you pronounce the capital of Louisiana?
New Orleans or New Orleens? (pron.: /n http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Keyˈɔrliənz/ or /ˈn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Keyɔrˈlnz/










Its pronounced Baton Rouge Dodgy

It's spelled 'Luxury Yacht' but it's pronounced 'Throatwarbler Mangrove' .

Why do you hate it so much??

Honestly, I'd never heard the term until we moved to Oregon. It just grates on my nerves when a server shimmies up to our table and loudly asking, "ya want a pop?"

"let's break it down. 7up is a sugary clear caronated beverage. "Coke or soda"is a caramel colored sugary beverage, root beer is root beer, ginger ale is ginger ale..."

I'm just a bitch.

RE: How do YOU Pronounce it?
Dom is a brilliant logician and I concur.....IT IS SOFT DRINK!

Anyhow that what Australians say.

There is a soft drink called Creamy Soda which is a sofT drink.

Pop is something done by weasels or a name for your father.
