evidence

i was recently informed that my pronunciation of the word foliage betrays my canadianess.  i don’t say “eh”, i don’t make long O sounds, i don’t have a weird “ou” lisp. generally, i think i blend in quite well with the rest of america.  i was under the impression that all my years in the states had eradicated all traces of my ties north of the border.  alas… sadly, i was mistaken.  does make a person wonder… when else will such slips become evident?
