When you say "this pronunciation", do you mean /eŋk/ or /æŋk/?

comment Term for aboriginal people of Canada in a historical context
@JoeBlow, I'm asking for a non-offensive term I can use that would have been understandable to someone in the 1800s.

@DanBron, in the US, a term like "American Indian" meets all three characteristics, even though attitudes have changed greatly. I'm trying to find a similar term that works for Canada.

@JoeBlow, during the fur trade, the Europeans were far more likely to trade with and marry the local people than kill them.

So is TRAP bank a northern pronunciation or a southern one?

Now that's throwing me off even more. /æ/ tensing is in my own dialect, but never before /ng/.

@tchrist, I agree about the nature of "long-a" terms, just wanted something for non-IPA-savvy folks. My experience is the opposite of yours: bank goes with TRAP, hearing it with FACE was quite surprising.

@Josh61, I am not. The pronunciation I'm referring to is further forwards and more raised than either example at that link, pronouncing "bank" with the same vowel as "bane".

comment Derogatory word or term for a peasant/lower class
Do people actually say pleb and oik? I've only heard pleb in a video game (as a non-derogatory term for Roman laborers), and I've never heard oik.
