For the record, I STILL say that Canadians do not say "aboot" and "eh" is only used sometimes and in certain parts. I put the "eh" in the header as a JOKE!!!

A friend sent me the American equivalent of this, so I will post it in a minute....

There was a young lady that you knew that I spent some time with this past winter that would ALWAYS say "eh"

Last week I was with an associate from Ottawa - and she would also use "eh" often.

I am not sure if I have ever heard you use it - but you are special!

Especially in Manitoba........ there are no alligators there!

I say "eh" all the time........ maybe it's more West Coast.

every single person that i have met from Canada has said "aboot" and "eh". i have met people from vancouver and toronto and some parts in between.

my exboyfriend's roommate was from vancouver and we would give him such hell over "aboot" and "eh" he swore up and down he didn't say that.

I think this whole "aboot" thing is some great American conspiracy or something. I have never, ever ever heard anyone say aboot. Maybe "aboat"....that I can see.....but BAW, you are full of baloney. I say "abowt"!!!!

Zone, that's very interesting...I never noticed her saying "eh" all that much. There is one time when I was really guilty of this...I was at Tim Hortons, and as we were leaving I said "I really should have got a donut, eh?"

Speaking of that...I had 5 timbits today!

In the interest of US-Canadian diplomatic relations, I vow never to bring up the word "aboot" in the presence of Mrs. Edge, Angel or any other lovely Canadian Interlander





But I still reserve the right to use "eh" for a laugh when necessary.

Well, I'm from Western Canada... and I've never had that kind of accent. For a short while, I lived in Texas... and the only way people knew I was Canadian was because I told them... and I didn't have that traditional y'all drawl. Anytime I do say "eh" and "aboot" it's just as a joke... there is a difference in American/Canadian accents, but I think there's a slight tendency to exaggerate on both sides.

What are you talkin aboot eh?
