Saskatchewan calling hoodies Bunnyhugs 🤔By @globalmaps
The dialectical variations around Canada.🌎🌍“Spread across a vast landmass, Canada’s roughly 30 million anglophones speak something called Canadian English. The stereotype often goes that Canadian English is a lot like American English in terms of both vocabulary and pronunciation, with significant influence from the British Isles, resulting in words like zed and spellings like colour and centre. A subtle Canadian accent that affects the vowels in words like about and write, and a collection of characteristic Canadian vocabulary like chesterfield, toque, poutine and bunnyhug, add to its uniqueness.🌎“Wait, bunnyhug? Yes, bunnyhug is a very Canadian word (for a hooded sweatshirt), but you’ve probably never heard of it if you live outside of Saskatchewan. It turns out that there is a surprising amount of diversity within Canada when it comes to how we talk and the words we use. Of course, everyone knows about the characteristic English of Newfoundland, and regions like Cape Breton, Lunenberg and the Ottawa Valley also have unique ways of speaking. But even in other places that have no obvious reason to talk differently, Canadians have developed strong regionalisms.”🌎🌍Map from The 10 and 3🌎🌍#canada #canadian #language #dialect #toque #north #truenorth #canadien #toronto #vancouver #speech #montreal #english #french #français #dataviz #infographics #datavisualization #interesting #cool #instafacts #woah #picoftheday #amazing #factoftheday #map #maps #cartography #lexicon
