What’s Different in Canada? A Guide for Americans

द्वारा प्रस्तुत जुलाई को 10, 2013 – 2:28 शामकोई टिप्पणी नहीं

Canadian toque, from Lululemon Athletica "माँ, there’s a word that people use here that means ‘hat,’” my 10-year-old daugh­ter told me one day during our first win­ter in Vancouver.

"ऐसा लगता है जैसे 'अंगरखा.'"

"अंगरखा?" मैंने पूछा. "छह? क्या आपको यकीन है?"

If you’re Cana­dian, you’re undoub­ted­ly lau­ghing or at least rol­ling your eyes at our Ame­ri­can igno­rance. Although we were well-acquain­ted with ski hats when we relo­ca­ted to Cana­da from Bos­ton, we had never heard the Cana­dian term “को छूने" (pro­noun­ced “toook”).

Remem­be­ring my ear­ly days as an Ame­ri­can in Cana­da, when I was fre­quent­ly sur­pri­sed by all the things that were new to me on the Cana­dian side of the bor­der, I’m get­ting lots of laughs from this tum­blr blog, What’s Dif­ferent in Canada?

Writ­ten by Kevin Bra­cken, an Ame­ri­can who went to school in Toron­to, this self-des­cri­bed « Begin­ner’s Guide to the Dif­fe­rences Bet­ween the Two Most Simi­lar Coun­tries on Earth» high­lights words, वाक्यांश, and cus­toms that baffle many Ame­ri­cans when they visit or first arrive in Canada.

Can’t tell a Duo-tang from a donair? Per­plexed by PD days and pou­tine? तो बाहर की जाँच करें What’s Dif­ferent in Canada?
