I wonder if any other country similar in size to the UK, has so many different accents within. Even where I live, I can take a 5 minute drive to Bonnybridge and the accent is totally different, ken?

Id better stay out of this thread
Being removed from all of the local dialects or only hearing them once in a blue moon over the last 24 years you tend to forget what they sound like.
I was at a baseball game a couple of weeks ago and there was a female Londoner sat behind me and next to her OH. After about an hour I seriously considered leaving after listening to that accent
I mean when talking to a female who is really good looking even a scouse or geordie accent can sound sexy.
There again I dont base all my interactions on accents because if I did a lot of people would be refused entry into Canada

I hate strong Glasgow accents.

Ned - "aye am urr"... "geez a fag or al bust ye"

Me - "Is that your dog fouling the grass?"
We Jimmy - "HEY ANNE-MARIE!, YUR DUGS DONE A BIG SHITE OAN THE GRESS! HAW HAW HAW! YA BEAUTY!"

Me - "Are you going to clean up that bottle I just saw you smash?"
4 year old - "wizznay me ya prick!"

....... better go check my ECAS eh

The OH is Canadian and I have had this topic with him a few times. I'm just glad to think that most people across the world find the British accent sexy...thats if it is understood!

Fave UK accent: Geordie
Fave accent by men: The Oirish although do like Dutch too
Fave accent by women: French

Worst accent in the world and not just the UK: Brummie - good for if you want to sleep...the droning effect is awesome!
Worst accent by men: Aussie Men - it's all just mumbles most of the time
Worst accent by women: German

But that is more South Shields. We are less subtle on the Durham side.

Favorite UK accent...Londoner
Favorite Male...Southern Irish
Favorite Women..Southern Irish

See where i'm going here


Worst accent for a man...Aussie, dear god i'd need drugs to cope with that.
Worst accent for a women...Canadian, high pitched fake voices that sound like children on helium...some women here need slapped with a shovel.
