There are a lot of regional differences in the U.S., as some people have pointed out. I'm from back East, but my nieces and nephews have grown up in the Midwest, and they think it's hysterical when my sister and I call "pop" "soda", or a "sucker" a "taffy". To me, a "sucker" is somebody who's gullible.
