Hockey.

Hey, why is it that when I talk with Canadians, they often refer to it as "the hockey" rather than just "hockey"? (As in, "Oh, yah, the wife and I are going oat tonight at aboat seven o'clock to watch the hockey, eh?")

I will give the Quebecoises credit for a major linguistic advance over the French- a well-rationalized set of numbers. Instead of calling 97 "four twenty ten seven", they actually say "ninety seven." (quatre-vingnt dix sept versus nonante sept)

It is a very common expression in the UK, THE football, THE rugby, THE snooker...

And nobody mentioned Rush yet?

Sy,

You have to get out more. Try the west coast of Canada. There's no funny pronunciations like you're alluding to.

Noo doot aboot it eh!

I will admit to having visited Canada about two dozen times, and never anywhere except Ontario and Quebec.

You are missing the best parts <duck>

You'd think with all the wine happening in Napa North (i just heard the Okanogan refered to as this on the news), you'd have an excuse to come up to this end of Canada.

Actually, the bulk of Canadian wine production is over on the NY side. But I use "bulk" in a loose sense; the total output is pretty small. My visiting excuses have always been (sadly) industrial rather than gustatory.

I've been wanting to see Vancouver for a long time- I hear the food is outstanding and it certainly seems to be physically beautiful. Ah well, one day...

We call Vancouver the big smoke... dirty, noisy, hectic... but everything is relative. The ferry ride is very nice (if you haven't done it a thousand times already)
