If a guy walked up and kissed murbot I think he'd stop smiling...

We make fun of Canadia all the time at school...luckily one of the guys in my class is Canadan, though not quite a shining representative of the country...

Ah well, if Quebec ever becomes independent, the U.S. will annex the rest of Canadia anyway.

How many times do I have to spell it out for you Brad... I am not interested.



Oh, and you can make fun of Canadia all you want. Just leave Canada alone.

And Quebec... well, they can go to hell.

(we should have a smiley for when you feel obligated to use one, but don't really mean it... too fool any Quebecers who might be here)

heh heh

Yea, that's a running joke...

America, American.

Canada, Canadian?

Since when does Canada have an i before the last a? If so then it is Canadia...

Alternatively, Canadian is spelled Canadan for the same reasons.

Crazy foreigners.

In American english, "Canadian" is the correct usage in every styleguide I've seen, and I've never seen the term "Canadan" used in formal print.

I agree, though, that it looks a bit odd of a spelling:

Russia--Russian
American--American

But I think gramatically, the last "a" in "Canada" is being dropped and replaced with "ian," similar to:

Italy--Italian

Linguistically and gramatically, why "America" doesn't become "Americian" by the same process probably has something to do with which syllable the "ee" sound appears in (second to the last syllable in "A-mer-i-ca" last syllable in "I-tal-y")

Also, -cian in the spelling of "Americian" would be pronounced "shun" as in "Physician".

So basically, I guess it just needs to be chalked up as another inconsistancy and oddity of American english.
