HOMEWORK: DIALECT SURVEY

I have to do "survey" for a linguistics class. So, speakers of English...

What do you call
1) a pair of chuck taylors (e.g. sneakers, tennis shoes, chucks)
2) a carbonated beverage (e.g. soft drink, soda, pop)

And 3) how do you pronounce "often" when talking to friends.

***please give age, gender, "hometown region", and occupation.

Thanks!

ETA:
Thanks for the feedback!

And this was kind of crossposted to ontd_garbage. So, if anyone wanted to read what other people said, it's here.
