Anyone familiar with the Northeastern Pennsylvania accent? I've been trying for years to lose it, and I've succeeded a bit (I think.)

I hate deep South accents (think Arkansas); the only southern accent I like is the Savannah, Georgia accent (see Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.) I LOVE Irish, British, Scottish, Australian accents; also most Eastern European accents (Czech, Slovak, Russian.) I also LOOOOOVE Canadian accents. I'm a bit of a Canuckophile.

I have a soft spot for Irish Accents...They are soooooooooooooooo sexy *drool drool drool*
Whenever i'm on the phone with my irish friends ( male friends of course! lol) I'm like: Ah jaysus......*drool drool drool*

On the other hand, i hate my accent....It's too....uummm...Latin! One of my friends even told me: you know what Flavs? You sound like Salma Hayek! LOL ( Yeah right!)

Flavia

Irish, English, Sctottish, and South African melt me every time, but a deep south American drawl does it for me too.

After living in Memphis for 4 years, I've developed a very light Southern Accent. I was told just this morning that it was very "sexy... uh, um, cute."

Anyone here from Western New York State? I believe people here have the most annoying accent in the world...that flaaaaat A. Nasaly as hell! People tell me mine isn't as pronounced, though. :-)

Don't feel bad, Nothern Irish in this thread - I visited Ireland two years ago (Ulster and the Republic) and I find your accent to be positively charming.

I also like Irish accents in the Republic, Cockney accents (anyone enjoy Are You Being Served? - Miss Brahms), and any other Scottish/English.

Oh yes - Minnesota, ya? Dontcha knowww? Hahaha....

Western New York...Like the Southern Tier (Buffalo and that)?

I was just up there over Thanksgiving...did not hear a noticeable accent. Matbe a VERY clean version of a New York accent, but nothing horrible.....Not like Bayonne, N.J.

Yes, you are correct.

LOL I have lived here for almost 18 years and we don't have any resemblance to a NYC accent! Oh well.
