I've looked at YouTube videos & I just don't see the difference from either accent aside from a few words Canadians say differently than Americans, but aside from that, is there much of a difference? :/

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.

Ah, I'm from California. I imagine people in Quebec have a slight French accent considering a lot of the French Canadians reside there, but I wouldn't be too sure.

Best Answer

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.

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.

nothing eh!

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!)

Best Answer

Depends where you're from.

got no idea..they all sound foreign to me

Best Answer

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.
