The past, present, and future of Canadian English: What our accent tells us about being Canadian

To anyone outside of the two countries, the difference between a Canadian and American accent is non-existent. To the average non-Canadian, the pronunciation of “about” as “aboot” is the only Canadianism they know. Then enters Canadian English. This unique dialect separates Canada from the US, but many Canadians will tell you that they don’t always notice the difference.
