    I don't think there is such a dictionary online. Accents vary from place to place in both Canada and the U.S. Use the pronunciations in any standard dictionary.

    ok thank you ms. sue :) can I know if there is a pronounciation canadian voice thing online? like you type in a word and they say it in that canadian accent.

  • English -

    I didn't find any site like that. I suggest you ask a friend whose native language is English to pronounce some words for you.

    The only one I can suggest is the Oxford English Dictionary -- www.oed.com

    You may have to create an account, and I don't know if it's free or not, but it's worth checking out.

    Other places to check on are the library websites of various Canadian universities. Here's one:

    Here's another idea to try.
    1. Go to http://www.onelook.com
    2. Enter the word.
    3. The results will show up in different dictionaries -- look at the list at the left. You'll see this:
