What a way to end the Olympics with that amazing hockey game last night-thanks Sidney! I have to say that the Olympics definitely brought the city together and helped us realize how we can give to the world instead of taking. Thank you to everyone who made this event so successful and thanks to all the Speech Pathologists, Linguistics, ESL teachers, clients, and corporations who sent me emails and comments on this 17 day blog .
So good bye for now and we will see you later in Vangcouver. That was a good party , eh?
Here are some good comments I received:
“Why do the newscasters say “Vangcouver?”
This is due to the velarization of the neighbouring /k/ which changes the /n/ to a velar /ŋ/.
“What is the proper way to use the “eh?”
The “eh” is used for agreement. Eg. This is good, eh?
