Yes, Canadians will apologize if you bump into them. (But I bet you do too – it’s not limited to Brits and Canadians).
Sorry can mean a lot of things = true apology, preface to uncomfortable information, request for repeating information, and even getting mad. Check the tone when you’ve bumped into someone – their sorry could be suggesting that you apologize.
Because Canadian’s use this word so much, I created a Canadian translation image.
What languages are on the image?
I used the Nice Translator and tried to get as many languages as possible. I translated ‘sorry’ only. I also tried ‘I’m sorry’ but many of the translations were the same. Please take a look and see if the translations are wrong – I’ll fix as soon as possible! And of course, I’ll apologize!
