I grew up in a bilingual househould and can put on any major Spanish accent, and you know what? If I gave you an "accent lineup," you could not choose the Brazilian one.:p What you really like, old boy, are their bikinis!!

And the Brazilian butt could have something to do with it, I admit.

Stern, now it's time for me to admit something: I set a small trap.

If I did a "lineup" of Spanish accents, of course you couldn't pick out the Brazilian one, because there would not be a Brazilian one. In the major cities of Brazil they speak Portuguese!

OK, you knew that, you just weren't in intellectual mode...:)

If they are speaking English: French on a woman (nothing compares for me).

Italian on a man (Scottish on a man is hot too).

Worst accent: Australian grates.

Worst accent: Australian grates.

Not all of us in Oz speak with the archetypal broad Australian accent, which also grates on me. There are very significant variations.

The New York City accent (all variations) does it for me, Lou Reed speaking.

Merry: I was not speaking about you.... you sound lovely.

I could have added quite a few others there... our own acccent from the Veneto region sounds particularly awful to me.

Anyone here familiar the Philadelphia accent? Baltimore? See the films of John waters for a sample.



(notice how I brilliantly got out of that one...)

I took the quiz ^^^ and got "Midland accent." This is their description:

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

If you're from southern Indiana and environs chances are you speak with specfic regionalisms (i.e.: "warsh" for "wash", "ruf" for "roof").

My result told me I have "The Inland North" accent (i.e. Minnesota / Chicago).

None of my family -- on either side -- comes from that area.

I hitchhiked through Chicago back when people hitchhiked all over the place. And I've switched planes at O'Hare.

I spent one weekend in Minnesota during college when the sister of a friend got married.

Perhaps a signficant other or influential person in your life (other than family) was midland north? Or if you spent a number of years in San Francisco, perhaps you combined accents, ending up with that?:D

I have to disqualify myself because I have a so-called "foreign" accent -- U.S./U.K. Virgin Islands. My accent is almost identical to that of actor Kelsey Grammer, who is a native of St. Thomas. Ummm... you can have his accent and not be pompous!

i had no idea there were so many different accents in the US. i can usually tell if someone is from the southern states but apart from that american accents sound pretty standard to me.
If i were to pick an accent i like then it would be either swedish or the north east of england.

I think alot of how attractive a person is the sound of their voice. Personally the most beautiful spoken language Ive heard is a Swiss announcer on the train in German, and a boy talking Thai to his dad - two languages not renowned for the beauty and usually coming out as butchered as the stereotypes. Upper class Afrikaans is a dream too.

I love Singaporean>Malaysian spoken word; its very characterful. Its stresses are all in the wrong places combined with a very colourful patois: they talk slow too, unlike other Chinese. "You want to come for dinNER?" "You like walkie talkie FISH- lah?" (read: We can buy live seafood).


Accent alone though I do like the Irish, with a secret inclination for Americans - dont tell anyone- (Baawston specially) and Aussies too.
