With 35 million people ranging across 10 million square kilometres, it’s no surprise that Canada has a lot of variety.
Chances are that at some point you’ve done a double take when a friend or relative from another province uses a word that you’ve never heard before.
Maybe it’s your friend from Saskatchewan asking to borrow a bunnyhug or your cousin from Ontario asking for help cleaning his eavestroughs.
There is plenty of variety when you look at linguistic across different regions in Canada and now a few of them have been laid out for you.
The 10 and 3, a company that tells stories about Canada by transforming data into maps, did a nationwide linguistics survey and has finally published the results.
All of the results fall into one of three categories, which are ‘Canadianisms’, ‘strong regionalisms’ and ‘how we pronounce’.
