Carleton County is nestled next to the state of Maine, USA. Think of New Brunswick as a clock, and we're located right around five minutes after nine. It is an area diverse in culture, colour, and beauty. Sparsely populated when compared to most other regions along the border, it's nevertheless one of the largest potato growing regions in North America. The landscape rolls with fertile farmland and ancient glacier-carved mountains carpeted in evergreen, hardwood, and weathered rock - the backdrop of the region's other major industry, Forestry. Family trees branch thickest towards the British Isles, although many European names find local representation as well. And over the years, our strong work ethic and rugged landscape have conspired to produce a unique way of communicating.
"Colloquial," as defined by Merriam-Webster, means "a: used in or characteristic of familiar and informal conversation; also: unacceptably informal. b: using conversational style." The colloquial language of Carleton County holds true to these definitions.
