I say tomato....
Although I've lived here for more than two years now I never cease to be amused at the way Canadians pronounce words. They laugh right back at my pronunciation. Take lambasting for instance, a flat vowel sound for me. For Canadians it's not so much a pronunciation as a recipe. Don't even get me started on herbs. You might notice they miss a very key letter off this one. Below is a little recording of me and a real live Canadian laughing at each other's pronunciation of some key words. I take requests so if you have any other favourites then please let me know. You'll notice I'm very restrained in actually coming out and saying my pronunciation is correct although funnily enough one of the words is "patronising."
Give it a few seconds - it does work.
This isn't the first time I've gone on about how to say words. Oh no.
