like places around Newcastle, sorted of a not so Geordie, Geordie accent. They are the best
#3
I like the scottish accent too sophie, although some areas of it I do find hard to understand.
#4
Doric
#5
Oddly enough, the Scots seem to love the South African accent. I know a SA family who moved there and, despite the girls not being particularly stunning, as soon as they started talking, the locals would be transfixed.
#6
I:w00t: LIKE THE SCREEMS OF THE WELSH WHEN I CRUNCH THERE BONES, YUM.
#7
Scottish or Irish for me :)
#8
I have no problems understanding the scots accent as my granny was scottish, perhaps that's why I love it so much. :)
#9
Irish - grandparents were both from N.I.
#10
My mate's dad is Scottish.
When he rings on the mobile to speak to him
my mate (scouser) starts talking in a scottish accent:-D

We all take the p*ss out of him for doing it,
We ask him and he goes all:oops:

I like the Edinburgh accent and the West Ireland accent.
#11
welsh or australian
#12
The fada áááééééééé :P

I quite like the Southern accent, especially Dublin, mostly girls though :P I'm from NI, nice to see that more than one person actually likes the accent!

norfolk

I'm a Geordie. I remember reading somewhere that the reason many people like the accent is the fact the pitch changes during talking making it almost musical as opposed to a monotone like a brummy accent.

Personally I like a mild Scottish accent, kind of like Edith Bowman on Radio 1.
#15
For me it has to be an Accent on a girl from Co.Donegal Ireland

Absolutely love accents, here's my top ten

1. Italian women.....The deep hoarse sexy variety.
2. French women......Fiery or placid.
3. Geordie men or women..........Not too broad or fast.
4 South Wales male or female.........When sober
5. Spanish .........The softly spoken variety
6. Cornish women.........Over 25 yrs only. The motherly " 'allo my 'andsome" type.
7. Irish..........Again when sober and quietly spoken.
8. Mexican
9. Aussie men and women
10. Jamaican!

Pet Dislikes:
South Africaans
North American especially Texan
German
Liverpudlian

i like edith
#22
I'm from Edinburgh and work in a bank call centre where I often receive compliments on how nice my accent is.
I sometimes find it difficult to understand the really broad Welsh and Irish accents.
#23
Anything soft and lilty but not too 'local' so that you can't understand the words.
I rather like a quiet brummie or south welsh (sober, or not, but not the shrieky one).
#24
What annoys me as a brummie is people thinking you sound like a black country / dudley / west bromwich / wolverhampton accent, where as the brummie accent is no where near as strong as those.........

Personally like scottish, jamaican and usa.

Dislikes cockney, welsh and black country !!

I reckon you just like being chatted up by women!!:whistling:;-)

Not wishing to be pedantic, but doesn't saying you like the Welsh, Scotish, Irish, (insert nation of choice) accent make about as much sense as someone saying they like the English accent? i.e. There is no one single accent for any of these nations. :thinking::oops:

p.s. Hottoshop, you've been busted, again. ^^^ :p

Good points, especially about hottoshop - I hadn't even noticed!!!:thinking:
But people do say that they 'love an English accent' e.g. Americans (I'm not going further than that, to e.g. any specific Americans!!) because there are lots of common features within a country's accent and a lot of the differences are only very clear to those within that country. So, true, there isn't just one accent but, on the other hand, it ^^^ isn't non-sensical.:)

That's rich - a Brummy saying they hate the Cockney accent! But Cockney is East London, and like you say a Midlands accent is not Brummy, it's the same with the London/Cockney accent!

lol you're going to make me pay forever aren't you mucky ;-)

I'll go on record as saying I prefer women to men although in my prime I was chatted up by men a couple of times :oops: Memories of Lily Savage (pre TV and in "her" prime) and a pub near Heathrow come flooding back.

Didn't do anything for me so stuck to the ones with softer bumps. :p

I guess if I was pushed on "The Voice" or "The Accent" thatmoves me more than any other it would actually be male !
Richard Burton used to send shivers down the spine when he spoke and even hearing his voice nowadays makes me smile.

Anyway I'm waffling when what I really should be writing publically is that :

I don't like the brummie or scouser accents much. I don't dislike cockney, though it is annoying how almost every British character in an American film is cockney. It was refreshing to see Jamie Bell in the new film "Jumper". I mean wow, the Americans are finally branching out and realising that there's such a thing as a north of England. So good to hear a near-Geordie accent in a holywood film. Did us proud did Jamie.

Yep, that's very true. :) My O/H is American and she can't distingush a lot of UK accents.
