Regional Varieties in English in Nova Scotia


  • Lilian Falk Saint Mary’s University, Halifax


This report will present a selection of data obtained from a fifty-item questionnaire distributed to English-speaking residents of Nova Scotia. The questionnaire was aimed at identifying regional preferences rather than at finding unique Nova Scotia words or expressions. The items selected for this report will reflect some of the patterns emerging from this survey, such as the presence or absence of marked regional preferences.
