You have to teach me to say out. I just can't get it.

Now, it's true that I'm famously bad at dialects except I can rip off some Python and I do a rather good Nigel Tufnel but that ain't real. People think I'm great but they don't know any better. I'm faking it.

I know I can get this but after all these years, I'm stumped. I keep thinking of oot and aboot from that lousy Rob Lowe flick but that ain't it.

It's like my mouth can't do those sounds. I hear it all the time on Oak Island and I still can't get it.

This is what the virus does to us. Start totally stupid threads like this.

"Out", in Canadian is:

"Take off, eh..."

There is a dictionary...

Thank you, for thanking me, for trying.

I obviously have nothing to teach.

I think at this point, we both just need a good haircut.

Can't teach it bud, its just a dialect of sorts... but theres lots of videos to attempt to teach "Canadian" lol

I find it funny to even hear, but we think you guys talk funny too! *shrug*

We don't really say hoser, that seems to have been forced into the language, and Canadians being very polite, we just accepted it... though im sure IF you go down east you'll hear it now and again

And we don't say "aboot" just so you know... that's just hard on the ears... its more of a throaty U

Like... Sometimes we go "out an about".... er "out fer a rip"

Good stuff dere eh

I don't think you guys talk funny it's just this one word I can't seem to get. The "oot and aboot" thing was a drunken Canadian girl in the back seat and was just a bad joke but it was the only part of the film that was memorable. It still makes me chuckle even though I know it's not correct.

It's more like "oat", with a soft "t".

Goin' oat n aboat.

First you'll need to chug some maple syrup to get into it. Then say "OOT". There you go.

Canadians don't go "on vacation" they "go on holiday".

They eat "paaasta", not pasta.

The vowel sound of a long "A" is used through out there conversations. Example, "I'm going to the store "A", to get some more beer "A".

Your conversations must be polite to the extreme as well.

You can study similar accents in Fargo ND or the UP of Michigan. Or watch the movie Fargo, or skits by Bob and Doug McKenzie.

I don't really understand what you're talking ab'out'. Its like pout... or pronounced with a short w, hence the single u. I still don't get it though.

I'm glad there's no one around me. If there were they would probably think I've gone wonky. I'm sitting here trying to get this word out right and probably sound like a complete lunatic.

That kinda works though, I think I'm getting there. It's one tiny word, how hard can it be?
