    [align=left]It is well known that Canadians speak the same language Americans and British people speak, which is of course English. But every country of those has its own dialect. Americans usually end their sentences with "huh?" and start it with "umm". While British people LOVE the word "bloody" and "mate" they have to add them into almost all their words. Canadians on the other hand love the word "eh" which is our lesson for today. Please, Americans back off and if you are reading this don't tell on us....lol

    [align=left]It has come to my attention that some people are having a tough time understanding Canadians. So I am going to run through a very brief translation of the Canadian dialect and hopefully ease some minds out there.

    "Eh" is a useful word that is very important and is the basis of all Canadian communications. It is used in conjunction with other words, or simply by itself. The tone or the slight difference in exclamations also changes the meaning.

    Eh= what did you say

    Eh?= what do you think

    EH?= something to say just to end a sentence

    Eh!!= !!WOW

    EH!??= what do you mean

    Eh??= your joking

    EH!!= Hello..you off in the distance

    Eh?= want a donut

    Eh!= sure

    Eh!Eh!= coffee double cream too please

    Eh?= what you say when you realize you have no money to pay for it

    Eh..cmon eh?= asking them to let you pay for it next time.

    hey..eh! = want to go to the drive in movie

    Eh...uhuh= yes sure

    Eh..y'know= Ill pick you up at 8

    Eh..cmon!!= well thats early..but ok

    Ehh..whadya think eh?= marry me

    EHHH ehh EHHH ehh= babys first cry

    other usefel terms:

    hoser= a good friend..

    take off!= you are kidding, no way, fly an airplane

    skates= what all canadians wear as first shoes

    lumberjack= something in our genes..

    screech= a nice drink

    swish= a drink made from leftover screech barrels

    The Rock= Newfoundland

    Newfoundland= pronounced noofunlan

    Dory= Newfoundland cruise liner

    Toronto= pronounced Trawna

    Lake Ontario= where all sewers drain into

    Yukon= a drink

    Two Four= case of beer

    sixty pounder= large bottle of screech

    Over by= still havent deciphered that term yet


    So if you hear them talking like this:

    Hey..eh!!..cmon eh hoser! y'know take off

    EH?? umm err well hey ok eh

    :D it's friendly!

    I live next to Canda in the border , in the American side. I never knew they speak like that.
    .I hate the British accent, but I love the American accent, because It was easy to learn.
