Heamer: The Canadian accent just sounds kind of funny, the Jersey accent is just grating on the ears.


Truth be told, no one in Canada actually talks like Bob and Doug Mackenzie (except for some stereotypical newfie pockets). That's just a joke we play on Americans. Most Canadians sound like standard American English (ie: nightly news anchors, which half of them are Canadian, and are recruited as such for their neutral dialect).

Another thing I find odd about American accents: Why don't sorry and lorry rhyme? I had my friend from Rochester say them, and I got "saw-ree" and "lorry".

They don't rhyme because lorry is pronounced 'truck'.   ;)

Super Chronic: whatshisname: Lived in Canada for 45 years and except for maybe one Newfie I met that one time, I have never heard anyone say "aboot"

To me, it sounds more like "a boat," and I hear it from people all across Canada.


"About" seems to sound more Canadian the farther east you go. No one says "aboot", but we also don't say "abaoowwwt" like Americans.

miss diminutive: /several Newfie friends of mine are virtually incomprehensible, especially after a beer or two


This, except for me they're relatives (lard luv a duck, yeh don' say b'y)


ytterbium: I think the Quebecois accent is very sexy.


You smoke crack if you think someone who says "dat char c'est blu" for "that car is blue" and calls it French is sexy.

ytterbium: change1211: miss diminutive: Canadian? What's a Canadian accent supposed to sound like, exactly? We're pretty geographically dispersed, there's not exactly a uniform accent for the whole nation.

/several Newfie friends of mine are virtually incomprehensible, especially after a beer or two

The French can be pretty entertaining as well.

I think the Quebecois accent is very sexy.


You gotta be shiatting me.  Parisian french is 'zees over zhere' while quebecois is 'dat dere over dere'.  It's comical it is, but sexy it ain't.
