northern/southern english - hot factor
scottish - HOTT factor
reminds me of my pa. most hilarious man ever
you're going to get every man in the uk to combine their spunks?
is the Sligo accent. Sarkyfox would know it maybe. I melt inside when I hear it. True fact.
it's.................. so horrible dude.
thats my families accent, even thogh i cant understand what they are sayong to me
Yeah, pretty much. I thought I may as well kill two birds with one stone, and capitalise on this opportunity for a popular thread :P
Also, the Geordie accent FTW.
when I become a Conor Oberst-esque sensation, I might write a song about this :P
and liters of Cider that I have a ripe old Westcountry accent now.
Pretty much anyone from the North part of the UK, who isn't from Northern Ireland. Most of our accents are horrible.
in Bangor. Lisburn since then. my accent is probably a horrible mixture of those areas. Argh.
as long as you don't sound like nadine -
haaaaaaaaaaaaiii maiii neeayme's nadeeeeene
or say 'cyar' for car :P
my cousins grew up in derry, then in newry. they sound ok.... :)
I'm a fan of Irish too. Anywhere that doesn't sound like the Essex town I grew up in, really.
also a sucker for a soft irish lilt.
Irish pwn everyone. Sounds good to me! :P
- I met a guy from Limerick - soft Irish accent, plays the guitar, sings, is also very tall *swoons*
Essex or East London I don't really mind. I like French, Belgian or Luxembourgish if we are talking outside of the UK.
all East London bands sounded like Crass.
a certain english accent is pretty yummy. and irish accents always seem really nice, not just saying that because you posted the thread deary ;)
you would've said Northern Irish, but I'd know you're lying, cus it's shoite.
I wouldn't actually know the difference between an Irish accent and a Northern Irish one, I suck :(
I suck again :(
do you live in a hole?
james nesbit Vs dylan moran
actually I live under a rock. :(
but yes, I know James Nesbit.
I like both those accents :)
it's all so singsongy and lyrical.
Canadian accents FTW with the exception of the Newfoundland accent which is a bastard hybrid of Irish and Bristolian.
don mckellar, the "director" in this short clip, god has he got a fab accent..but WHAT ACCENT IS IT???? (i have only heard one other person in all my life with it)
i think that's just a yank putting on an english accent. or a posh american one. or something.
he's canadian and he's ALWAYS had that accent, in all his films and interviews.
"posh canadian" and he's the only one to ever have it!
Doesn't fall into the categories of snobby, whiney, fake or irrating that a lot of others do.
Everything they say is a poem of beauty and sweetness.
or anything, threadman, but re: Northern Irish-
They have the same tone all the time. Its like this sort of bored, can't be arsed way of speaking, and from what I've heard, it seems to restrict them from actually being emotive, even to a tiny extent.
maybe not as obvious to the untrained ear. but... they are different.
just like southern irish ones.
and also say Stephen Fry's
has the bst everything though, so that's not such a surprise.
HOOK ME UP!!!
can you find a youtube clip?
I'm all kinds of wrong :(
is actually in my list of men that I would conceivably sleep with.
I think I might move to Newcastle just so I can listen to people all day.
not Newcastle or Sunderland. Durham.
not in the city york, but just outside all the accents were all bubbly!
barnsley accent is sex
this is how all the men i worked with in york talked. it took me over a week to understand anything they said at all!
york residents take about half an hour to say each sentence.
i've had ex-girlfriends crying into my arms because they can't decipher my stepdad (he's from rural County Durham).
i was born in york.
understand you wonderfully, now :)
the old guy sounds like my relatives, but it was still a bit difficult.
the asian guys have that pseudo northernenglish/asianspeakingenglish thang goin on.
york actually, sort of. i want to quit school and move back. maybe. i was sad today when mail came to say that my boyfriend is allowed to stay in canada for another year, part of me wants him to be thrown out so that i'll have to go back to the uk.
