pronunciation question

We are watching "Corner Gas" while we wait for our game to start. We heard a word that we barely recognized, and deciphered from context.

How do you pronounce "decal"? You know, a transfer, a little plastic or paper thingy with a picture that you can move to another surface? Like a sticker, but more permanent?

Also, do you remember my observation that Canadians shorten many words to one syllable? Cash (in the US, it's check-out or cashier), and names like Cath and Barb? I thought of another one. Chevrolet. In the US it's Chevy. Folks here call it a Chev.

Anyway, let me know how you pronounce the word "decal," meaning some type of non-removable sticker.
