Eh?

If I hear a Canuck say a-boat, instead of a-bowt, they'll get a-boot across the face

I'm also very sorry about Bryan Adams...very very sorry, Celine too. I wont apologize for Avril and Michael Buble...they were cool until they they hit the US :o

For the "EH" it'* the Canadian term for the U.*.'* "Huh?" and only eastern Canadians have an accent and some people in Ontario, Albertans have a country lingo but BC, Sask, and MB speak normal. Well a small percentage of BC since the majority of people there are Chinese .

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

EH : pronounced AY (similar but not the same as huh)

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
Eh..wanna?eh? = lets fool around
EHHHHHHH = sounds coming from the car
hey..um..er eh... = Im pregnant
EH????????? = how did that happen?
EHHehhEHHehhEHHH = sounds from the delivery room
EHHH ehh EHHH ehh = babys first cry
Ehh..whadya think eh? = marry me

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(thats why we walk funny)
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
