Cass, I’m from Tennessee, and I can attest that nearly everyone calls soft drinks/soda/pop “Coke,” even if it’s not Coke. The follow-up question of what kind is asked almost every time. My accent, though, only really comes out when I’ve been around my extended family (read: rednecks). Otherwise, I have a pretty neutral accent with a “y’all” thrown in here and there for good measure. (Incidentally, spell-check says y’all is a word. Score!)
