    Do most native-speaking Canadian men have that.....Canadian/British accent?
    Or is it like here in the U.S. where there are different accents for different areas of the country?

    ( Hope I asked this correctly) icon_wink.gif

    I never understood why America doesn't make an effort to bring that pretty British accent back. Like hello... all your accents are ugly.

    Wether it's the New York one, the Boston one, the hillbilly southern one....

    The British accent is a construct that occurred after the creation of the USA.


    Imagine this in a British accent


    You are quite absurd, i will pinch your ninnies

    I feel like Canadians sound very similar to Americans, do you guys feel the same about Australians and New Zealanders?

    Americans and Canadians sound the bloody same, except when Canadians say words like 'about' in the that cute way, but thats not an accent, just a little dialect thing. They speak the same! I refuse to believe otherwise!!! The only difference is that Canadians know how to spell, except for a couple of words like 'tyre' which they like to be all American and spell as 'tire'.

    I can JUST about tell the difference between Australian and Kiwi, there is a definite difference in accent. Now Kiwi accent sounding like a South African Accent, you must be mad, South African sounds like a Giraffe being raped.

    The Boston accent is the accent of Lancastershire of 400 years ago. Boston has retained it, while Lancastershire has moved on. So actually, Boston does have the pretty British accent. icon_biggrin.gif

    I think we think ozzies and kiwis are practically the same thing, although I've heard that they will get angry if you tell them that.

    In Canada, we have no british accents. There are wonky french accents in Quebec. In the maritimes (far east coast), there's a bit of irish lingering in the way they speak. My family in BC really accentuate the "ah" sound. I say hand as "haynd", they say "hAHHnd". CAHHnahhdahh. Maybe it's just them tho.

    Dunno about up Noth tho.

    edit: omg the above video is of the worst tv show ever ever ever made. It's just so so bad and unfunny. But we have to have a percentage of our tv as canadian-made so it was aired. And because people liked the gimick of a show about Canadian prairie folk, despite the lack of humor, it succeeded a few seasons. Please don't judge all Canadians for that sucky showing.

    I'd imagine the Canadian accent to vary the same way it varies in the US. I mean they speak French in and around Montreal.

    Minnesota and the generic/typical Canadian accent are similar, I guess.

    Huh? I cant understand your accent.

    Notice how I deftly brought the thread back on track after you derailed it. That's American for ya.
