RomanTic - in RomComs they drop the T and it drives me up the wall! It becomes “romanic” - OMG he’s so romanic! And once heard it cannot be unheard! UGH!
As an “Upper Canadian” raised by British ex-pats, my natural accent and pronunciation and intonation is vaguely “English”. I didn’t know how different this was until I moved west and got told I had a “Toronto” accent. And my SO is from NFLD, so accents and pronunciation differences abound in our house, even more so when alcohol is involved.
Apart from the “romanic” thing or “pacific” instead of “specific” (or in writing “of” instead of “have”) - I think I just accept most as regionalisms; just the way things are said there.
Also as a canuck, I honestly do not hear a difference in how I say “about” or a yankee says “about” but most yanks dissolve into gales of laughter when they hear me say it… /shrug
