@Eldin Raigamore:
I'll give it a try. Wait, "most attractive?" What if none of them are? LOL! Just kidding.

@Hemicomputer:
What does it say? Does that mean that Canadian English is different from American English and/or British English?

It's a phonetic transcription of Serali's post. So, it correcponds to the actual sounds of the words (as I would say them). Canadian English has some pronunciation differences from American and British English. For example, the words father and bother rhyme in Canadian English, while they would be distinct in most other dialects. We also change how we pronounce diphthongs when they come before a voiceless consonant. E.g., wide is pronounced /waɪ̯d/ but white is pronounced /wʌɪ̯t/. In case you can't read IPA, another good example is that we pronounce housing as "how-zing", but house more like "hehwse" (try saying "eh" like in "bet" followed with an "ooh" sound). That's where we get the stereotype of Canadians saying "oot and aboot" for "out and about" (even though those words never some out that way).
