Hey Im malcom, hows it going?
Umm, we spell about just like you ...ABOUT. Just to throw it out there, I know when you watch TV, like southpark,family guy, or the simpsons or other satire shows, we are shown as having these really weird accents and we always say "aaaay".... I can assure you this is not true. Like I said, I have been all over the states, no has even been able to tell im from "Canada" based on how I talk, I assure, most of us sound like any american. Now there are expcetions, in Newfoundland and Labrador (a province), they have these really thick scottish accents (I think its scottish), and they have a bit of a reputation for being hard to understand, but thats a small, small...SMALL population, like the population of Rhode Island versus the entire population of the U.S.A. In terms of saying "AAAAY", thats 90% true. But we dont say it incredibly slow, like the way you hear it on comedy shows...it ends up being said so fast it sounds more like ...."eh".... as in "eh
, what are you doing?". Any we dont say it at the end of every sentence, just like some southerners dont always say "ya'll".
Oh and if you were just joking about the "aboot" part, my bad..im an idiot, what i can i say...
