A fun way to learn how to understand and talk like a bona fide Newfoundland native. Before heading off on holiday to Canada's Atlantic seaboard with the notion that the natives speak the same English language that you do, be sure to pick up this fun pronunciation guide to nearly 300 words and phrases heard only in Newfoundland and Labrador. Like other books in the Slanguage series, simple English words and syllables are used along with clever illustrations. So don't be a jinker (someone who brings bad luck) or a scut (a dirty, mean person)--learn to talk just like a Newfoundland native.
