    Official Need enthusiasts from Canada to get through a short survey!

    Hello! If you read this, that might mean you can be so kind as to spare a few minutes of your time and get through a short survey. I study WORD ACCENTUATION in Canadian English trying to prove how unique a variety of English is spoken in this country. I have chosen some words that differ in pronunciation in British, American and Canadian Englishes and created a survey for native speakers. Every response is of great importance for us! Thank you for your concern and - hopefully - participation!! The link is here http://goo.gl/forms/gf7jLrT6Hz

    Fascinating to analyze the differences in accentuation but this applies only to a minority of words. Most native speakers can freely communicate in spite of their different countries of origin, with some exceptions..such as Jamaican English which is less easy to understand
