    I particularly liked the many usages of "eh."
    I live about an hour from Windsor, stateside, and pretty much every one I know ends their sentences with "eh[insert appropriate punctuation]"

    Rosie it is indeed a foreign language. I have had to learn a lot of it if only to avoid confusion and save time!!! I will forever refuse to call my lawn and garden a yard. I WILL educate these people on that one!!!!
    My husband still laughs about the first lesson I had here when the trainer told me to halt (on the rail - I guessed that one) and reverse. I asked my horse to rein back (seemed to translate OK) and she did it very nicely. No that wasnt good enough, we repeated the exercise several times, I was almost accused of riding like a beginner, I thought our rein back was really good. I told trainer that if she could do better then she should show me so she I got off and she got on and she turned the horse around and set off in the other direction
    Why did I not understand what 'reverse on the rail meant?

    Oh and Rosie, just a few more to help you on the way should you come across them...

    Bunnyhug = jumper with a hood.
    Toque - soft hat/beanie.
    Lorry = semi (truck)
    Tracksuit bottoms = jogging pants
    Tights = nylons.
    Hairclips = berrets

    Oh and...
    Awsome = awsome :)

    Jumper with a hood... you mean a hoodie?

    Is bunnyhug only a Saskatchewan thing??? Now I'll have confused poor Rosie :/

    The term bunnyhug is very popular in Sask, not sure about the rest of Canada. We refer to a bunnyhug as sweaters with a single pocket in the front, and a hood.

    Definitely a SK thing.
    I'd never heard it in BC until we had a "Canadian Trivia' thing in gr. 8.

    I have some of those in my wardrobe and it's just the nicest name ever! I don't care it it's not an Albertan thing - I'll use it at home now :)

    Ps Jaydee - I would have done a reinback too

    I call them either bunnyhug or hoodie. Didn't think it was a regional thing/slag only to Sask. But then again I grew up in Sask as are many others that transplant themselves to Alberta,maybe it just crossed the boarder with us:)
