  20. The Canadians I have known don't pronounce the letter H or the Hhhh sound. Like 'honey' would start off with the 'Hhhh' sound but when they say the word sounds like oney. I worked with a women from Canada an she married a Henry Higgins but she said Enry Iggins. But we here in Naty say things differently also.
