A very simple one:

Yes in Quebec is often pronounced "Whey", where it is pronounced as "Wee" in French (for the most part).

Even when they speak English they will keep that annoying French pronunciation...
For some reason, it's the English "r" that they seem to have the most difficulty pronouncing. They will keep it hard. And also, they keep insisting that "th" is pronounced exactly like "z" (the = ze, that = zat)

And yeah, they tend to use a lot of anglicisms... Shopping instead of "faire les boutiques" (or magasiner in québécois), parking instead of "stationnement", etc. but I think we might use a bit more in Québécois... since we are surrounded by English people everywhere.

Makes me think of a joke by Martin Petit he says he went to Paris for a show, when he got off the cab the driver said ''Hey Martin oublis pas d'aller faire un peu de Bronzing''

Bronzing??? You cannot bronze estis!

The French spoken in the European mainland doesn't get shouted in my ear every time I play a Drop In NHL 12 game.

no, North American English is closer to "old English", just like Quebecois French is closer to "old French".

in pronunciation, grammar, and spelling, both North American English and Quebecois French are closer to the languages spoken in 17th/8th century England / France.

Not everyone does. Different sectors = different dialect.

That's like saying, "Well someone in B.C. said Eh? alot so everyone in Canada most say it."

Don't be silly, a character from early 2000 is definitely representative of the majority of frenchies

No not really.

Quebekian french is "older" french for the most part mixed in with words that reflect there heritage/experience.

A more apt analogy would be Afrikaans and Dutch.


From my experiences french and dutch dont understand quebekian/Afrikaans but generally Quebecers and Afrikaaners can understand french/dutch for the most part.

Well it's the same language, but the pronounciation is different and some words and expressions are different.

Think of the difference between North American english and British english.

"Je joue avec les gosses de mon voisin" means two completely different things depending on what continent you are. This sums up the difference.

For those that are French here. When you log into HFBoards, does everything come up French or do you choose to have it in English?
