What's your favourite accent? Is it the one from the country you live in/were born in/your culture? Why? SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS PLEASE.

Danish is my favourite accent, it sounds so cute and homely n.n
August 15th, 2012, 06:08 AM
My favorite has always been English which I don't think is that uncommon. BUT ONLY A CERTAIN ONE. Not the super rough pikey or chav or as I imagine English farmer one, just a normal one or the fancy posh one yaya.
I really don't know why I like it I just do. Which is actually a miracle because I find most accents besides my own to be really irritating. Probably because growing up a lot of my family came from different parts of Europe and so they pretty much all have pretty bad accents.

I like Irish accents best. Not sure if it's all Irish accents though because I haven't heard that many, just enough to appreciate them. Close after that is Australian though.
August 15th, 2012, 06:34 AM
Hahah Accents something Diablo can do. I say I have a small Australian accent cos I'm Aussie but I don't think I notice. I love American accents though on females I say it is the cutest.
I can do many accent impersonations I can make a very heavy Australian accent, British accent, Indian accent and a Scottish accent. Yeah... lmao.

The welsh accents one of my favourites <3 It just makes me melt. I also like how people from Liverpool talk but that's mainly because I find it hilarious when they get angry and start shouting with it!

omg this, it's the funniest.
Anyway; Irish and Australian. I just love them. ;; I've never really had a reason why I just do. I find Scottish accents cute, I can't understand a word, but they're cute.
American accents I can find nice. It depends on where they're from though.

I like British and Australian accents; even though they're similar, they have their own charm. French, Jamaican and Italian accents come in close.
August 15th, 2012, 07:53 AM
well lets us see I like the Swedish accent maybe because I am part Swedish.
August 15th, 2012, 08:36 AM
Hm... I like a lot of accents, although the ones from America are most certainly NOT my favorite.
Overall I'd say I like Russian, English/Scottish, Japanese and Australian accents the best. Especially Russian though. :D
August 15th, 2012, 08:42 AM
I love British accents, it's really cool-sounding imho. <3
Russian accents I've gotten a bit tired of on the other hand, since where I live there are a lot of Russians, haha. Myself included. n_n; (though thankfully I have no accent here in NY since I sound like any regular old American)
August 15th, 2012, 09:54 AM
It's... a tie between British and Australian. Whenever I hear either one of these accents I get so fascinated in hearing them. Oftentimes I wish I had an accent like that. :P
August 15th, 2012, 10:01 AM
I love German Accents~ British accents are also nice.. but depends on where they are from. Don't like cockney accents, or accents from way up north where they'd say "buuk" for "book" and such.
August 15th, 2012, 10:39 AM
I agree with Kura, German and British accents are absolutely wonderful. I have one specific German friend and I could listen to her struggle through her english on skype all day-- it is really THE most charming thing I have ever heard!
August 15th, 2012, 10:49 AM
I really like British accents myself, although it can be a bit hard for me to understand at times. xD However, closer to home, I kinda like Canadian accents and northern US accents, especially Michigan. For most of my sophomore year in high school, I picked a Michigan accent somewhat from one of my friends, lol.

I love the concept of a British accent, I'm fairly sure the common perception of a British accent hardly exists outside of the royal family, I figure it's the same with a lot of countries though.
I like the stererotypical Australian accent, obviously I'd have no idea on their variations.
August 15th, 2012, 11:26 AM
I love Australian accents! I don't know why they appeal to me so much, but they just do. XD I used to think I was a bit Australian because I thought I was able to do the accent. :x
August 15th, 2012, 02:06 PM
No American love? No?
Don't blame you. English all the way. :3
August 15th, 2012, 02:39 PM
No American love? No?
I like American accents! :D
But I like British accents more. Sorry. XD;
I also love to laugh at the stronger Australian accents. My English teacher is White Australian and he's from the country. He has the funniest accent and it's even better when he uses words which bring it out more. XD
August 15th, 2012, 07:01 PM
Okay for me it does depend on the voice. A lot. But I do like Geordie, Mancunian, Northumbrian, South Welsh, Bristolian, Glaswegian, and Yorkshire.
I suppose American accents tend not to appeal to me because they're normal for me and they actually sound fairly similar most of the time. And if they're not then I kind of find them annoying? idk
And um yeah I don't actually hear many accents besides British/Irish/American? And even with American accents I don't hear much beyond Midwestern accents. So I'm sure there are other accents I'd like if I heard them more.
edit: fdghjk I just got done watching John Bishop's Britain and I forgot that I really like Scouse as well. xD;

I speak with the Mexican accent at home. When I speak English you could easily pick up that Spanish is my first language.
I like the most is the Spanish accent spoken in Argentina and Uruguay, I also like the Spanish accent from Equatorial Guinea (mixed with native African languages).
I also like the Japanese and Korean accents and also Lao and Burmese too.
August 16th, 2012, 01:06 AM
I'm okay with most accent but hate Brit and Australian ones in general......>.> But I've learned that Cockney makes me laugh, and it's grown on me since I talk to a certain guy basically 24/7 xD that has one. Not to mention my fiance has a thick British accent (his is more proper though). So I'm stuck hearing those from here on out.
My favourite EVAR accent is the Brooklyn accent (Italian, NY, even overblown ones lol). Sexiest accent EVAR. >//w//< If i could have any accent, I wish I could have that one. I don't really know why I like it so much, it's always been attractive to me. Even when i was very very young and met a few people who have it naturally etc.
I also loooove Cajun accents. A LOTTTT. Especially extra spicy ones <3 Visited both Georgia and Louisiana and heard a lot of Cajun accents there. It was beautiful! Zydeco music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOYHdBDmPNE) (that has Cajun music influence at it's root) is one of my favourite kinds of music of all time too. WOOOOOO
August 16th, 2012, 06:51 PM
I like ALL the British accents. Each and every one of them. And Irish. Those all tie for my favourite accent lol.
I liked the Scottish accent too until I saw the trailer for the movie Brave too many times and it turned me off it. I'm sure I'll get back into it; I just need a little break :P
After the British sector, my next favourite accent is American. I would date the hell out of an American.

omg last night I was skyping with a Portgeuse guy and his accent was just soooooo hot omg
I don't know why I love that accent so much, but in the Portgeuse guy's words, whateber.
August 18th, 2012, 12:04 PM
I got a little obsessed with the South Welsh accent lately. I really love how it sounds, it's amazing (that rolled "r", which I can luckly make because I'm Spanish, sounds awesome).
Aside from this one, I like British accent too.
August 18th, 2012, 04:58 PM
Guys with Australian accents... unf...
Also Irish accents sound really cool haha XD
August 19th, 2012, 02:51 PM
Dunno why, I just love it. Also, and Scottish. Pretty much any English accent except for the posh one. That sounds a hit too "classy", the others are just strangely cool.
Edit: Oh and don't forget Russian accents. Despite what you may think, it sounds very laid back imo <3 sorta like Grovyle lol

I like the California accent because it's what I speak and I can understand it easily.
Accents don't really appeal to me enough that I like some over others. I just like being able to communicate with someone and sometimes accents get in the way with that.

I love New Jersey accents. <3 I think they're hot.
I'm not a huge fan of the accents people in my area have, though. Like, half of them have really rednecky accents and the rest are pretending to be really posh with their obviously fake Boston accents.
August 21st, 2012, 12:10 PM
I really like the Spanish and German accents, and I also tend to like the Australian accent too. American accent is cool, but it all sounds the same for me, unless it's a southerner accent, and I really like that too ^_^
August 21st, 2012, 12:32 PM
I love any accent foreign to mine. I have a friend from Turkey who could make the harshest insults sound sweet, but not on purpose. It's funny how a slight difference in tongue muscle movements can make a voice so distinct.
August 25th, 2012, 12:46 PM
British and Australian, usually. But since in my job, I deal with a lot of British tourists, I prefer their accents more. :3

Swedish accents are great. All Scandinavian ones are, to a certain extent, but there's something specific about the Swedish accent that I just can't quite put my finger on. I hear a lot of American accents on TV so they've become slightly old hat to me, but Swedish ones are always new and fresh every time I hear them! :D
