General Canadian accent. It's a bit of a mix of Ontarian, Prairies, and Maritime. I suppose Ontario's accent is more dominant because I've lived here most of my life now but I still find that I pronounce a looot of things differently from friends who have lived here their whole life. A lot of the terminology I use is from the Maritimes too, but I guess that's not actually accent. :s

Not really a fan of accents in general. I kind of like ones that you can barely hear, though--so you don't have to work in the slightest to understand the person but you can tell there's something a little exotic underneath. Those are fun to listen to.

I'm Mexican but I sound American...probably because my first language was English and wasn't taught Spanish until I entered 4th or 5th grade. Right now if you hear my voice you can tell that some words I say will sound Spanish-y.

I am in love with both British and Australian accents. Both accents are music to my ears tbh.

I'm really not sure what accent, but since I'm from Missouri, I guess a Missouri/St.Louis accent? People here say some words differently such as "farty-far" instead of "forty- four" and "warsh" instead or "wash" . I've never really noticed myself saying those words like that but I'm sure I have before. I think everyone has an accent, sometime you just don't notice it cause you're used to your voice.

I really love British accents a ton and French, Australian , and Irish accents too.

My main accent has to be Spanish (Mexican accent) since my grandma and my mother are from Mexico, and its the main language spoken in my home - so my main accent: Pacific Northwest English with Spanish Mexican accent if it makes any sense. I learn to love my accent. At times I do have problems pronouncing certain Pokemon names (when I hear them in English in the anime and I try to replicate the sound, sometimes I cant), same with lots of other words.

I really love the Japanese and Korean accents. When some one else speaks their language, or speaks in English and I can tell of their accent. Sometimes in my head "I wish I could have that accent too". I also love how the Swahili accent sounds like.

Um, it's a bit weird. I was born in France, and I lived there for about 10 years. In that time I'd already formed my accent, so when I later moved to England, it was an absolute train wreck. I still can't form my 'r's and 'h's that well :[

So, it's an awkward mix between a French accent and an English one.

I love listening to other people speak, so you can say that I'm a fan of all accents. I especially love how the Irish speak, though :3

According to certain Americans I have a Canadian accent. Whatever that means. My accent borrows from many of the ethnicities and the diverse people I've met during my lifetime and I tend to pronounce the same word differently in different contexts.

I don't really think I have much of an accent at all really, but then again that's probably impossible. My bet is that (being Australian) I sound like I have an Aussie accent to those who do not have one - although I don't think it would be an overly strong one.

As for liking a particular kind? I don't really have a preference for any particular accent at all.

I have a really bad accent. It's like a mix between Southern Hick and a manly female, which is absolutely horrible.

I don't really have any favorite accents outside of the standard British-favorite, I'm more about the pitch and sharpness of voices. I absolutely hate those nasal white-girl voices that they have on the West coast, especially when they say "like" over 90 times in a sentence >.<

Oh g'day Megan, how ya going, like my accent huh? Obviously I have a bit of an Australian accent, but it's not pronounced like the Steve Irwin Kangaroo Rider, I'm from the city, not the country, nor am I a bogan, so my voice is quite subdued and moderate, I also speak to foreigners a lot and would pick up some of their speech behaviours. I do use a bit of Aussie slang sometimes, and the way you Americans pronounce your R's is CRAAAZY, I never do that. My favourite accents are the New Zealand or English middle class, Americans sound so silly to us, sorry

I like English / British accents the best, oh my god.

Aside from that, my own accent is just a normal American accent, which to me doesn't even sound like I have an accent. xD It's not country, or Boston or anything, just typical American accent.

I enjoy the "Geico" accent the most. It's kinda like a cross between British and Irish.

And my accent is just a normal American one. But, I do have the ability to an Indian accent.

my accent is Glaswegian from Scotland, ( every town has it's own accent in britian).
I am quite fond of the Swedish accent. ( that might because I am 1 quarter Swedish)

Lol you would love my accent then. It is British but a few people can still make out the underlying Australian accent that still lingers in my voice.

I have a Scottish accent, a hint of Glaswegian in it. Accents I like? I like hearing some German, Spanish, French and Russian accents.

I used to have a half-native-half-english-all-foolish type of accent but now it's developing into a pure Asian accent.


I like French accents and those which I can clearly understand.

British, some would describe it as sounding quite posh - but it's pretty standard for the Berkshire area.

I sound American for the most part, but there are times when my accent comes out.. though I'm not even sure what kind of accent it is. I was born in Russia and lived there until I was 7 but the accent doesn't, to me, sound much like a Russian one haha.

I have a slight southern drawl when I say some words but otherwise, it's a pretty standard American accent from the mid-Atlantic region... well, until I start counting. Then the drawl comes out.

I just love the following accents (in no particular order):

-Southern Drawl (Strong, preferably on girls)
-British
-Irish
-Swedish
-Australian
-Kiwi
-Canadian (I'm soary!)

And many others ;-; I love accents omg <3

Even though I'm Asian, I consider myself as having an American accent. The accents I like include British, Australian and Spanish.

My accent has virtually travelled all over the globe it seems. I've deliberately changed my accent a number of times just through practicing the phonemes of a dialect I want to learn, which also helped me understand that there is no such thing as speaking accentless English (or any other language for that matter), unless you are a mute.

I used to speak with a pretty flat New Yorker/Mid-Atlantic accent, partly due to how I learnt English primarily through watching the telly and playing video games. I spelt everything like an American too. However, my English teacher got fed up with me about that, and she often mocked me openly in class for speaking the way I did. She only barely didn't deduct points off my tests for spelling colour without a u, so in that case, my accent went mid-way between American and British, AKA Mid-Atlantic. Englishmen would comment I sound American, and Americans would comment I sound British, or worse, Canadian.

Overtime, I started fooling around with the International Phonetic Alphabet, and I got into amateur linguistics. I got into conlanging a bit and tooled with grammar, phonetics, and all sorts of things. I was nowhere near as skilled with it as I am now, but it was fun. That's when I practiced phonetic realisations in Canadian English, which was only a stone's throw away from the American English I already knew. All it took was monophthongising 50% of my diphthongs and raising my "ou"s and bam: Torontonian accent. Why? Because my English teacher hated it, whatcha gonna do about it?

A couple of years ago, my interest in the Oceanic accents grew. I already knew much more about linguistics, loved Australia, and felt the need to crank everything up to 11. I tried practicing Australian phonetic realisations, then accidentally made a pit-stop at Southern English English, and dove right into a South Australian dialect afterwards. The result was that I spoke an awkward mix between Scottish, Estuary, and South Australian, though I kinda liked it. I kinda forgot how to flap my t's in intervocalic positions like Australians usually do, and my broad a's were much more open like it would be in Scottish. Presently, those British and Scottish influences have subdued, and I can't say they are that much part of my accent anymore. I do speak a very broad variant of Australian now, with every feature of Australian present in my speech. It might annoy some, it might not, but at least I don't raise my pitch yet at the end of every sentence like it's a question? Because that's more annoying than a musquito buzzing close to your ears? I've actually fooled a lot of people who thought my accent was genuine.

As for what happened to my Dutch, it's far less interesting to talk about. I was born close to the area of Rotterdam, and never really noticed how offensively broad my accent really was until I was 10, when my family moved to Tilburg, and I was teased relentlessly for my pronunciation of the r in some positions. Given that I've lived here for 8 years now, I've taken the middle route, and I ditched my Rotterdammer accent for an ABN accent. Basically, I have the perfect voice to narrate Dutch movies.

I really love a lot of accents. The thing about them is that each is so unique, and have such interesting linguistic features that it's difficult to hate any. Some of them have very interesting grammatical features, or a kind of sound to it that rings awesome to the ears (or really funny in the case of New Zealanders pronouncing six). I just love every English accent.

Except Lancashire.

That accent can burn. :3

I speak with a normal American accent, though at times I feel like I have a touch of a Southeastern American accent in me. Because I'm from Central Florida, which is a very diverse area, a Southern accent is in the minority around here, but I certainly do have the dialect of a Southern American accent.

I love British and Australian accents too! And believe it or not, I can't stand the stereotypical Canadian accent, even though most Canadians sound similar to Americans, but with some pronunciation differences.

I'm Australian, and one would expect my accent to be Australian. However, mine's actually a mix of Australian and British dialect.

I always loved the typical Australian accent so I am glad to have possessed it.
