(Equally well fits in the silly humour thread, eh?)yes
what's her accent - sounds like Montana?
Remember that Coen brother's film set in Montana? I cant remember the name, hang on - Fargo - the same accent - it's funny cause it's reminiscent of a Wexford accent at times (SE-most county in Ireland). They say 'Hun' there as well. I remember someone claiming the word came from one of the Scandanavian languages (and is not a short version of 'honey'), which might make sense in terms of Montana - with Wexford, it was a long time since the vikings visited (8th-10thC), but many did settle in Ireland, and there are still signs of their presence in place-names, and surnames - and possibly in the language (I'm no expert here).
Oh, it's a Canadian accent alright.
I have quite a few friends that have elements of that accent.
It's taken me almost 2 decades outside of Canada to be able to hear those "Canadian" bits of accent. They range from really thin to extremely thick. And I still can't for the life of me hear the "about" thing -- which on many occasions has betrayed me as Canadian to some discerning listeners.
One journalist that I like, Dan Dicks, has a light accent, but it's definitely there. Another journalist that I like, James Corbett, has virtually zero "Canadian" accent that I can hear. (I think my accent is like James' and not Dan's, but I'm in no place to judge properly.)
A lot of Irish did immigrate/flee to Canada. I'm not sure about the Irish slaves though. It would've made sense for Irish slave to flee to Canada, but I'm just not up on my history enough to know/comment.
