User's info

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada in 1971. I have a Ph.D in biological sciences, specifically genetics and cell biology.

I try to pronounce words as I would in everyday speech rather than fully enunciated. I speak with a West/Central Canadian accent. It is rhotic (final "R" pronounced), I pronounce cot-caught and Mary-merry-marry the same. I also speak with a Canadian Rising -- the vowel sound of "house" and "houses" is different and is the source of the amusing (yet incorrect) belief that Canadians pronounce "out and about" as "oot and aboot"; Wikipedia has a good article on this.
