Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Only in Canada You Say highlights more than 1,200 words and phrases that are unique to our neighbors to the north. Did you know, for example, that there are 17 Canadian words for ice!

Organized thematically, Only in Canada You Say covers Canadian English from coast to coast to coast, with sections dedicated to the things we love to do, where we live, how we get around, and what we wear. The entertaining and informative introductions to each section provide a fresh, often eye-opening, perspective on the reality of Canadian English from Canada's own 'Word Lady', Katherine Barber. Only in Canada You Say maybe 'eh' is just the beginning
