Well, it depends where in the US the person is from, and where in Canada. There are so many different accents in each country, depending on the region. Just listen to someone from Newfoundland, and then listen to someone from Kentucky. Oh, I could go on and on with examples, but I won't. The closest I have heard is people from southern Ontario and people from California. They sound almost the same.
Most of the people who are English in Quebec, do have a bit of an accent. I was born in Quebec, came to Ontario when I was 30.
yes, there is enough to catch it.
We say "eh" after everything we say...eh :)
Not all of us do it. I don't.
Generally, accents tend to be similar on both sides of the border in any given region. The North-Central accent in Minnesota, the Dakotas, is very similar to what we think of as Canadian English, same deal with Alaska. Southern Ontario is heavily influenced by Inland Northern, there's a lot of bleed-over between Maine and New Brunswick, and the Pacific border states/ provinces are so close its actually considered the same dialect. Its when you get a couple hundred miles away from the border that you start seeing real differences.
I think it depends on the region... People from the Eastern shore seem to speak differently than other people, but I think American's just the same as well (with people from the South!)
Depends where you're from.
Everyone who isn't from North Jersey talks like an idiot.
got no idea..they all sound foreign to me
Definitely regional accents exist in both countries, otherwise I can't tell the difference. I've heard people from Minnesota who, at least to my ear, have accents similar to those I know as stereotypically Canadian.
I don't know, but I'd love to find out.
One has real class and the other is made by Hyundai.
And the Canadians say oat, for out, Americans say out!
Don't forget tree for three....
Eastern Canadians call Toronto.. Taranaw.... as close to the sound as I could type it
I call Toronto, Toronto. We are not all poor speakers. Some of us have no problem at all with saying out, fine, three, and guess what, we don't even all say Eh, at the end of every sentence.
If you live in Minnesota or Michigan... the accents are very similar if not identical... If you live in Texas or Alabama.. the difference is HUGE!!!!
It seems like I'm the only person in Central Alabama who has a southern accent, lol
How can that be??? Are you not from Alabama? lol... we all have an accent.
