In a special (and lazy?) edition of the Vade Mecum, I want to share with you an interesting article I read during my research.
I try to be thorough in my choice of language in regards to settings. While I was researching Canadian slang, I came across this beauty: Why do Canadians say 'Eh'?
I have always been interested in this fun little Canadian add-on, so I've paid close attention to when Canadians actually use it (as opposed to just assuming they tack it on all willy-nilly). And I'm gratified to know that some of my conclusions were correct. BUT! This article goes way more in depth and explains it better than I ever could. And I'm happy to say I learned some things from it, too.
