Accents

Icarus's picture

In recent discussion with bulldyke, we talked about what accents we liked. so, i was just wondering, given that we're from different parts of the country (not to mention the world) i was wondering, what accent turns you on?

my personal favorites:

Scottish
British
Southern
Spanish

so, what're yours?

European Spanish, great!!! I also like it better in Spanish (since I have it and I am more familiar with it). What accent, if any, do you have in English?

uhhh....i don't really have

uhhh....i don't really have an accent, which is surprising to most people considering i live in the south. i mean, i occasionally slip into a southern accent, but most of the time, i'm pretty neutral.

"Yes! No! Oh, damn!"

everyone has an accent. if

everyone has an accent. if you don't think you have one, you've probably just got an american accent. like me, i have a californian accent, with a little bit of east coast to confuse everyone, but to me, i don't sound like i have any accent. cept when i'm trying to mangle spanish, but that's another thing entirely.

Love British accents, but K has a slight lisp that is way more sexy than any accent I have ever heard.

Eh...

I like accents, but man, at a club with loud dance music playing, it certainly doesn't help much, even with my musician's earplugs helping.

As lost_in_wonderland knows,

As lost_in_wonderland knows, I'm a sucker for a good *European* Spanish accent. I also like a Northern British accent. Um, Arabic is so hot...and now that I think about it, I could get into a really good New York accent as well.

I love British accents.

They're totally sexy! So are Irish accents. Oh, and Australian accents are pretty hot too.

I think I've got an australian accent ^_^
Then again people often ask me if I'm british or american, so maybe it's not as australian as i thought :S

I love american accents, but a specific kind that I don't know the name of ><
I know the sound of it though.

And I met this one girl who had an amazing accent, she was from sweden.

I really like boys with Scottish accents. Which is strange, seeing as I don't like boys. In general, though, I love a southern drawl (they're so cute!), and anything European. I have a very light east coast sort of accent... I mean, I don't pronounce water 'whuuter' or anything, but you can probably tell I'm from the Philly area.

Whatever I did, I didn't do it.

Hey, "y'all"

You'd think that as a Texan, I'd have Texan accent, but I talk basically the same way most Americans do. However, my friends recently noted that whenever I get excited or nervous, I sometimes slip in a single, somewhat Southern sounding word. (Whee! Alliteration.)

I like the American accent,

I like the American accent, I don't know how to distinguish between state to state, but I suppose the New York one is the one I like. I love the French language (not necessarily the accent when they speak English though). I also think the most intelligent-sounding argument-winning accent goes to the British every time.

I adore British accents,

I adore British accents, especially Kiera Knightley's: sort of clipped and drawling. And Irish, German, and New England.

There's also this girl I know with an unfathomable, amazing accent. She was raised in Jamaica, then Newfoundland.

I love KT Tunstall's Scottish accent! So cute! You can hear it in this video:

KT

I love her. Her music, her style, everything.

I also love how she's not afraid to do a cover where she's singing about wanting a girl back. Or writing a song like "Heal Over."

Yeah, she's completely awesome.

I'm pretty much in love with Saudi Arabian or a regular Arabian accent. I also like German and French accents, though not quite as much as I like the Arabian onces.

British, Irish, Scottish. Especially British.

Oh, and uh, British. :-)

Some forms of the British accent can make even the dirtiest of words seem agreeable. It's wonderful.

So long as we understand

So long as we understand each other, no accents really turn me on. I'm pretty good at pretending to have an accent if need be, so nothing is really new to me. I kind of have a canadian accent, which is weird because I live in the south, eh?
