"Pop" and "coke" are very strange indeed, I almost never hear these terms used. Pop just sounds dumb, and I don't see how you can use Coke to describe all types of soda.
It's actually all types of cola,not soda.You would still call a 7-UP
a 7-UP, and a Grape Nehi a Grape Nehi.Just brown pop like Pepsi,RC and Coca-Cola are called cokes.
