Canadian Girl Caught Saying "Aboot"...Twice!

by Lisa Ovens

Okay, we've all heard this before: Americans insist when a Canadian says the word "about" it sounds like we are saying "aboot". Well, when I was chatting with Paul and Chris at Utah House, Paul pointed out "Hey you just said "aboot". I disagreed. But as the conversation continued I did it again, and Paul was right: I said "aboot!"

I can't believe this, but I am a Canadian that pronouces "about" as "aboot". I am not afraid to admit this.

And I am not sure if this can be corrected.
