A word meaning 'about' said by eastern Canadians, the Scots (well, southern Scots anyway) and parts of north-east England.

One of the greatest words that isn't in the English language.

A common misconception. Canadians think Americans pronounce "about" as "aboot" and Americans think Canadians pronounce "about" as "aboot" as well. However, to my knowledge, no one actually pronounces "about" as "aboot".
American Guy: You're from Canada?! Say about! Say it!
Canadian Guy: ...About?
American Guy: What? Don't you say aboot?
Canadian Guy: ...No?
