Soda vs Pop Map Settles the Score
The choice and consequent usage of the word ‘soda’ or ‘pop’ is one of the US’ most argumentative topics, and it’s prevalent enough to warrant a study by the Journal of English Linguistics. Through the years, this debate has raged, culminating in a map. Based on 120,464 respondents, the map shows where in the United States people call drinks such as Coca Cola and Pepsi - soda or pop (and to my surprise, they even call it Coke in the South). See what your area calls it.
