Luverly stuff that. When I first came to Canada, at the wet behind the ears age of twenty, the family I stayed with would amuse themselves at barbeques by asking me if I wanted them to "knock me up in the morning," it is a phrase I had never used. But regardless of my answer they dissolved into peals of riotous laughter at my expense. I didn't understand until 'getting knocked up' was explained to me. After drinking a little too much of the vile beverage Canadians called beer I got sick, no I did not become ill, in my part of England getting 'sick' meant that one vomited, so I wasn't properly ill. However, it didn't seem to matter. To rid myself of the worst of my pronunciation, I came with a Black-Country/Birmingham dialect and spoke quickly, I took elocution and learned to say the letter 'a' as Canadians and Americans generally say it. I stopped saying 'aye' and said yes, and I dropped all nautical terms as no matter what phrase I used it was turned into something sexual. I really did need to get along well to have a decent life.
