I still say soda water. That's what it was called growing up and I'm not going to change that.

I've been calling it soda more lately. Partially because I have been drinking vodka soda more as my beverage of choice, and partially because it is simpler and saves time over all

In Texas, it has been and always will be called a coke regardless if it is or isn't a coca cola.

That map actually shows that soda is also common. And the lighter shaded the area the more variance of term usage there is

The majority of the state and population excluding San Antonio is shown to say coke.

I'll begrudgingly accept "soda pop." It's when people just say "pop" that irks me.

I don't do that. I don't see it necessary to state that I want a coke and follow that up by saying "specifically, a Dr. Pepper". I'll say the name of the drink I want. They don't ask you what kind of coke you would like at a restaurant or a movie theater. If I'm referring to multiple carbonated beverages, then I call them sodas.

How I talk to close friends and how I talk to people serving me a drink are rarely comparable.

I call them all coke, but what I mean is "I want a Dr Pepper".

Don't go handing me that fake Mr Pibb garbage either.

Yankees use terms like "soda/pop".

What do you call the machine that purveys sugar filled carbonated beverage? I have never heard someone not call it a Coke Machine regardless if it has coke or not.

It's called a vending machine.

When I was a kid you would tell the man at the store give me four soda waters. Make two of them coca cola classic and the other two 7-up's.

What does it vend? I thought you didn't use terms that require extra words to clarify?

Hoss, I will give you soda fountain because I've never heard someone refer to it as a coke fountain.

A vending machine will either put out drinks or snacks in almost all circumstances. That is common knowledge. I would say "could you get me a Dr pepper from the vending machine" or "could you get me a snickers bar from the vending machine". Or you could call it a drink machine or snack machine.
