I am Canadian. The "eh" gave it away, right?
Ben (AUSTRALIAN GUY),
THANK YOU for realizing that everbody forgets about the farther north n south!!! Im glad I'm not the only one that realizez this!
Why are people supposed to remember us. I live in Canada. Whats to remember Canada for, pander to someone's insecurity?
There was a person being interviewed in Canada. It was on the news in Britain, but anyway. I was listening to his accent (he was from New Foundland?) or something like that. Well his accent was wierd. It sounded like all varias British accents rolled into one.
Even Canadians have difficulty understanding a Newfoundland or Cape Breton Accent. These where very isolated areas, where the residents retained a very old form of English. A lot of Irish descendants live in Newfoundland and a lot of Scots descendants live in Cape Breton. They even retained some Gaelic. We had some old Normande in Acadia, too.
Newfoundland didn't join with canada until 1950.
Listen to the regulars in a Bermuda Pub, if you want to hear the real old old style English.
Regards, Paul V.
