Abstract:

This publication focuses on vocabulary, which reflects unique Canadian
traits; elements that share not only a Canadian origin but also reference
to everyday contexts present on both the micro and macro stage. The
conducted study aimed to show variation on the lexical level, which may
result from a fluid sense of national identity. The Toronto region, due to
its extensive multi-cultural and multi-ethnic background bears a sense of
diversity both on the social and linguistic ground. The conducted study
involved the distribution of questionnaires, which tested speakers'
knowledge of Canadian register, their ability of using them in the context
of everyday discourse and the identification of items. Furthermore, the
author had obtained two years worth of texts from the Toronto Sun, which
enabled the observation of Canadianisms within the written medium of a
media context. The resulting data formed a database labeled by the author
as the LCTES (Lodz Corpus for Toronto English Study).
