Which are your favourite accents, both nationally and internationally and which ones do you hate? Do you have a strong accent yourself? Are you good at doing different accents?

-x-

I actually quite like the Geordie accent because it just comes across as very friendly but the one accent I HATE is the Liverpool accent, where they just talk from the back of their throats (sorry to anyone from Liverpool kink.gif). I quite like the Welsh accent as well, I'm not sure if that's through watching Torchwood or not though and, of course, there's the Irish accent but that starts to annoy me after some time, I don't really know why.

I'm TERRIBLE at trying to do accents though, they all end up blending into one random accent. I can do the Jamaican accent a bit better than Jesy though!

I love the Geordie accent as well! Absolutely detest the the Welsh accent tho. :/

I'm currently rocking a mix between Northern, Southern, Utrechtish and Flemish accents when I'm speaking Dutch and a fabulous Dutch accent when I try to speak English (main focus being try)

Ugh, I hate most British accents. Irish, Geordie, Liverpool, Scottish, Northern Irish are all unbearable. And yes, that's good fun living in NI.

Internationally I'm quite partial to Swedish and Danish peeps speaking English and Finnish people speaking Finnish. There's also something oddly comforting about the Clinton / Frank Underwood style Southern DRAWL.

I'm not too sure what you'd class my accent as, being from a place half an hour or so outside of Glasgow probably Glaswegian although I don't think my voice is as harsh sounding as people from Glasgow, My accent sticks out like a sore thumb where I live now, people from Perth all sound so posh/polite, I've noticed that they tend to finish most sentences with "eh" too laugh.gif

I don't think there's really any accents I hate, sometimes Liverpool and Geordie accents can be a bit irritating I guess, I hate how some Scottish accents sound when you hear them on T.V though but that's probably because I'm Scottish.

I love Australian accents wub.gif I think people from New Zealand sound similar, I also love Welsh accents and quite like American accents too, particularly southern ones heart.gif

A lot of you will be glad to know I adore most British accents, even though some of them I occasionally have trouble understanding, e.g. Welsh. I used to entertain my mum and sister all the time when I was a kid by doing British accents. Those are pretty much the only accents I can somewhat do though.

I also love the general American accent, just the way it "rolls" smoothly, if you know what I mean.

I personally have a completely Irish accent, despite being Estonian. I've lived in Ireland for over half my life now so I guess it's natural. People still can't believe how Irish I sound though for some reason.

When I speak Estonian, I don't really have an accent because most Estonian people sound exactly the same.

I have to agree with the male Australian accent. I know both sexes probably have the same accent but the male one just sticks out somehow, in a positive way.

The Scottish accent is a strange one for me, it always comes across very angry.

I have a really boring accent that just sounds...english and it's really naff sad.gif I wish I'd kept my Geordie accent from living there a child because I love it too Froot, I still say the odd word in the accent which makes my friends chuckle but yeah, I wish it had stayed with me better.

I also love the Scouse accent, not sure if any of you watched the most recent Love Island but Hannah's accent was heavenly, I'm not sure why I like it so much.

I find it really amusing, and occasionally irritating, when Geordie people say "wuh" instead of "us" laugh.gif

I have a soft midwestern accent, with a bit of a nasally "nerdy" tint to it. I'm not too big a fan of my voice, though, and I usually think that it sounds horrendous whenever I hear it recorded. I'm pretty middle of the road on midwestern accents in general though (although, oddly enough, I actually hear a LOT of midwestern accents in the part of Florida I'm in. It's rather strange).

As for accents in general, as an American I have our standard obsession with British accents (particularly Scottish and Irish). I'm also rather fond of South African, Australian, and some French and Dutch accents. I dunno about accents I particularly dislike, though. I guess maybe thick American Southern accents and more "nasally" accents like mine?
