I like lots of accents! I lived in Ireland for a little while, and I love Galway-region accents – for me they were distinct, but easy to understand. but I sat next to a man from Cork on a bus one time and I couldn’t understand 3/4 of what he said.

I also like French and Italian accents.

Where are you from?

@mightywombat:  I was just about to say that my FI has a Galway/American accent… it’s the best!

Scottish for me – I love Scottish accents! 

@mightywombat:  My FI is from Cork, and he honestly just sounds like he’s an American. People tend not to know that he’s even Irish unless he tells them. It’s really quite strange, since there are a lot of people with very strong accents in Cork.

I LOVE southern accents!! They’re my favorite ever! I’m not such a fan of British accent, it’s a bit too pinched.

I really like Indian accents…also French (but I’m biased because I speak French!). And certain kinds of British accents.

I hated having an accent when I was in France! People asked me so many questions about where I was from and it actually made me feel really awkward. :/

p.s. Funny story – my stepdad has a strong Israeli accent (though different from all the other Israelis I know – not really sure why) but he’s lived in the US for decades. He and my mom met when we were all living in Texas. He’d lived in Houston for many years.

Well, he moved to Massachusetts awhile ago. He also has a mischievous streak. So when people hear his accent and ask where he’s from, he usually replies, “Houston.”

Their looks of confusion are priceless.

English accents, especially proper London accents are amazing.  I dated a few Brits while in Japan (and also one Dutch guy who spoke English with an English accent), and listening to them talk was awesome.

I also love Nigerian accents.

I’m not a fan of Indian accents either. I hear them CONSTANTLY! Maybe that’s why… There are so many up here in the Chicago suburbs!

@LiliKitty:  Let me specify, since there are tons of Indian accents out there.  I really love the very educated Indian accents, which sound like a mix of English and Indian.  For example, think Mohinder from Heroes.

@GreenEyedMoon:  Mmmmm, Mohinder!  I forgot about him (man, that show jumped the shark!)

I *love* Aussie accents!  One of my favorite bars is an Auusie bar, full of hot bartenders with accents.  So much fun 🙂
