    What Accents do You Find Most Pleasent?

    Where are you from? What accent do you have? What accent sounds nicest to you? There are so many accents all over the world, so the actual poll will be about Continents.

    As for me, I was born and raised down south, but I actually don't have too much of a Southern accent, but I do talk southern, so...

    I like British aceents, they are very pretty. (Julie Andrews's dialect) I like Scottish and Austailian and Canadian and Arabic and some Indian and Asian, and African (I think Kenya.)

    What about y'all?

    Southern accents. Everything else can suck it.

    British is the best, Southern is the worst.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I like Scottish, irish, African and british the most. The least would be probably Eastern block Nations.

    Southern, though I don't have one myself.
    Australian I like too, but not as a steady diet.

    The choices are too broad.

    "North American" would include Mexican, Canadian (which also varies greatly from East to West coast), and American (Texas vs. Boston?)

    Anyway... I'll just answer straight out. I like Irish, French, British, and Japanese accents (when they speak English). Of course, these all vary greatly too within their own regions.

    Depends on the kind of british person. When I play Halo or CoD or something with british people and they say something to me 5 times out of 10 I reply with "Dude I am so sorry but I have no idea what you just said."
