For true, english accents of Canada looks all the same for me... oh sure I'm wrong
I'd like to see some examples guys, it's about time for me
Btw, the only thing I know between USA and Canada is that US peoples think you say ''A boot'' when saying ''About'' ...
But, seriously... I can easily believe most English accents in Canada sound the same to a Francophone. Many of them sound the same to me. I can't hear any difference between Ontario to British Columbia.
But on the east coast, I can, for example, always tell when someone is from Cape Breton. They speak with the generic, Central Newfoundland accent. So if they're not Newfoundlanders, I know where they're from. But I can't tell people from other parts of Nova Scotia apart at all.
I think my favourite Newfoundland accents at the Marystown and the old East End St. John's ones.
The Marystown one is purely Irish. My English teacher was from there and he told us he kept winning bar bets in Ireland because no one would believe he wasn't from there.
The old East End St. John's one is AWESOME. The people in Quidi Vidi have it especially strong. It's almost a Boston accent. St. John's is "Sin Jaawnz". And it takes them two days to say, "Paaark the caaar!"
