    Smile Dominicans speak Canadian English also....Eh.

    When I fist arrived here from Canada in 1989 I was delighted to find that I thought I only spoke two words of Spanish, See and No but soon discoverd that Dominicans also spoke the English (Canadian) word Eh...............

    I was wondering how this came about for them, I was told that so many Canadians came down here before me years ago that the Dominican people picked it up from them?

    Can anyone verify this?

    No, Canadians learned it from Dominicans actually.

    I think "Eh" is sort of universal, kind of like "OK". It only stands out because Americans prefer "huh".
