    As a Canadian, I have never heard anyone genuinely say 'oot and aboot'. For the record.

    Some people from London and Essex who pronounce "th" as "f" or "v". I find it quite endearing, haha.

    -Fank you very much!

    -Happy birfday!

    -Your faver and brover are wankers.

    I absolutely love the way people from West Country speak. Although not too many young people from that region of England have the accent these days.

    Do you use the word "eh" at the end of every sentence like this?

    People from Maryland, especially from Baltimore and surrounding areas, sound quite interesting.

    Maryland becomes Merlin
    Baltimore becomes Balmer

    And many other interesting features.

    In Appalachia, hair is pronounced "haar"

    On another note, Appalachia is actually pronounced as Appalatcha.

    Most metals end in "ium" so that's not really a strange way to pronounce "aluminium."

    strontium
    cesium
    osmium
    germanium

    etc.

    garage
    barrage
    frontage
    sabotage
    image
    manage
    garbage
    message
    massage

    Because English is totally consistent, all the above words rhyme.

    I enjoy a Scottish accent or an Irish accent, saying anything ...very sexy

    And FYI.
    I am Canadian
    Dont say EH, or Aboot, hoser, etc

    the only sub dominate accents we have (after our english which is almost the same as regular american english) are Quebecois and Newfoundlander
    we do have sub accents like the states such as Ottawa Valley accent (myself to a mild amount) and variations from the first nations groups in the north.


    this is a tid bit of knowledge for all our friends abroad,
    especially you Yankee doodle dandies!
