Speaking Canadian English : An Informal Account of the English Language in Canada Hardback
What do English-speaking Canadians sound like and why?
Can you tell the difference between a Canadian and an American?
A Canadian and an Englishman? If so, how? Linguistically speaking is Canada a colony of Britain or a satellite of the United States?
Is there a Canadian language? Speaking Canadian English, first published in 1971, in a non-technical way, describes English as it is spoken in Canada - its vocabulary, pronunciation, syntax, grammar, spelling, slang.
This title comments on the history of Canadian English - how it came to sound the way it does - and attempts to predict what will happen to it in the future.
This book will be of interest to students of linguistics.
