There was this study done awhile back, on Americans favorite and least favorite accents:
Australian turned out to be the winner, while the stereotypical New Yorker accent was the most disliked(although i like it,lol).
No surprise here was the fact that the Los Angeles "Valley" accent was judged to be the "Least Intelligent"...HA!
I love Irish ,British, and Australian ones, as well as most US accents, EXCEPT for the Val one. I despise that one. Ick!

I like all those Irish, Scottish, English, Australian accents (including Northern Irish). They sound cool...probably cuz they're different! What I hate? The Midwestern American accent I've picked up in four years of living in Minnesota. If you want to hear a worse case scenario...just watch Fargo sometime.

Dontcha know?

Anything European...but most especially Irish (duh) and the French accent is one of my faves. I think that any Frenchman could melt me by trying to speak English...

Girls with just about any non-American accent really turn me on. But I've been around my own people so long it's dull.

Well with me, I love the Irish brogue - always have, reminds me of my grandfather!

I've got a really strong Boston accent that gets commented on ALL the time ... I sound like such a townie

I have the best accent. It is the Midwestern accent that the media and newscasters aspire to have. I don't know how to describe it location-wise--the north Midwest does tend to sound like "Fargo"--but I have it and love it.

Worst: Bayonne, NJ
(think New York - but lose any proper grammar).

Also rated on the negative side: Northern Ireland, Manchster, Liverpool (wish I could actually understand these folks), Deep South (Miss/LA). Minnesota/"Fargo" - "you betcha" is annoying.

Best: California (not valley though), Ireland (Away from Ulster) and upper-class Britain.

Cheers

How do you know you have an accent? How do you know you don't speak "regular" english (whatever that is) and everyone else has the accent? Just curious.

Sula you're SO crackin me up....cos I know whatcha mean...dontcha know.

I love *any* UK accent...they're so charming and lilting (to my American ears). If I moved over there I would pick up that accent faster than Madonna.

I don't like a Bronx-type accent - too abrasive; and goodness knows, since living here in Texas, I still can't stand a Texas accent...I guess because southern accents in general seem to denote a certain um...hick-ness to me (sorry, I know it's not really true, but it just seems that way to this non-southerner).

The South African accent gives me the creeps. Perhaps its just left over from the Aparthied days.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, but the Irish brogue... coming from the sweet voice of a fiesty redheaded young lady..... Ooooooooo Baby!!

And the Scottish brogue is quite charming too. I could listen to Shirley Manson talk all day.

..Ohhh yeah... the New York-Puerto Rican-Rosey Perez accent... Oyyy Vey, that makes me cringe!

I love the Northern Ireland accent! I had a professor in college who referred to "W.B. Yets" and said "em" instead of "um."

...sigh...

He was from Bangor, I think? Is that a real place, outside of Maine?
