Tag Archives: sorry
My ears are bleeding
Just like anywhere else in the world, Canadians have their own distinct accent. There are a select few words that are pronounced so strangely (and obviously wrong) that it distresses me when they are brought up in conversation. For example:
Pasta would be pronounced “past-uh”
Tomorrow = “to-moor-oh”
Produce = “prah-duce”
Out = “oooooot”
Bagel = “bag L”
Process = “pro-cess”
Been = “bean”
Against = “a-gain-st”
And don’t even get me started on the word sorry.
The only way I can make sense of it is that the Canadian accent is some bizarre fusion of the British accent and the American dialect. It shouldn’t be legal.
I see this commercial once every 5 seconds at home and there is a pretty good example of the word “tomorrow” in it. Wait for the very end though. The company is called Lavalife. And instead of saying lava like a normal person, they…well, you’ll just have to watch.
Seriously though. WHAT IS LAH-VUH.
