In The Dictionary

Something very random from the Vancouver Sun, as we do cover all things Sandra after all...

Sandra Oh is now a term in a Canadian dictionary:

Now there’s a new kid on the block. HarperCollins has published the Collins Canadian Dictionary, an 1,108-page volume containing such Canadianisms as “ beaver fever,” “ humidex” and “ flipper pie,” plus so many page-long essays ( e. g., “ The Use of ‘ Eh’,” “ Scottish Dialect in Canadian English,” “ Leonard Cohen”) that it seems part encyclopedia.


Collins has been publishing dictionaries for 175 years, but the Collins Canadian is the first to emphasize this country’s coinages and usages. Among its 3,000 biographical entries are ones for Douglas Coupland, Sandra Oh and Oscar Peterson.
