Courtesy of Macleans.ca, here are 12 Canadian words, phrases or slang that most Americans wouldn’t understand.
1. Two-four (24 beers)
2. Loonie (and, of course, toonie)
4. Klick (kilometre)
6. Peameal or back bacon
9. Chinook (the wind, not the helicopter)
10. Mickey (e.g. a mickey of vodka)
I'd like to add chesterfield to the Maclean's list. Call it a couch all you want, but it will always be a chesterfield to me.
