Although I had thought the Canadian dialect is only “eh” at the end of the sentence, one of my blog readers told me about the Newfoundland English.
The red part is “Newfoundland and Labrador”, the easternmost province of Canada. It reminds me of the breed of dogs with the same name. Yes, they are from this province. It seems that their accent is very similar to the people of the west of England and the southeast of Ireland, because Newfoundlanders originally came from those areas. Some examples are “a vine summer” for a fine summer, “tree of dem” for three of them, “helbow” for elbow, “eel” for heel fromNewfoundland English.
Even in Japan, there are many dialects despite it being a small country. English has a larger variety of accents worldwide. I feel that dialects are very interesting, but can be difficult to understand. This is a funny video. The comedian, Mark Critch, is lovely.
She has been listening to the song ‘Koino ABO’ these days.
Since this song has a kind of old tune, it sticks to my ear.
Japanese group ‘News’ seems to have been singing the original song around 2009.
Then Gintama lovers created this filksong.
Although they aren’t professional singers, the group has enthusiastic fans.
