Post Worst English accent
...and way of talking too. Which and why.

I'm going by country, because there's far too much variation in each country to list them all. Besides the answer is the Australian accent, where there's not much difference nationally anyway. First of all they do that up-talk thing which makes you want to smash a glass. Then everything's pronounced really lazily and shortened. It's as if 2+ syllables is just too much to cope with. Apart from vowels which they can't manage too well and extend and wobble around all over the place. A simple 'no' becomes 'noyee', 'fuck' becomes 'faaaaaack'. And to cap it all off it's also become horribly Americanised over the years, which has managed made it even worse.

Should have included regional American accents. The Southern accent in particular is grating. As is the "Fargo" accent.

Shit, I chose NZ accent. I didn't see 'American' there for some reason. :o

And I can't fucking stand strong Australian accents, personally. I agree with most of what Robit said about it.

Kinda hard to just narrow it down to English, Scottish, Irish etc

Accents are different 20 minutes up the road from where I am, never mind up in teuchter land.

But the answer is probably the Liverpool accent.

The worst accent in England is, for my money, the one(s) around Middlesborough/Teesside.

A sort of barbaric crossbreed of Geordie, Yorkie and for some reason scouse even though it's nowhere near Merseyside. Has a thoroughly unpleasant whingeing, defensive and chip-on-shoulder sound to it, like they're perpetually being accused of some petty crime or other. (Which they may well be.)

Doesn't even have the comic aspect of Brummie or yam yam whingeing. It's just horrible.

The scratchy, winey, harsh scouse accent you get in Skem.

Every accent is a marvellous and beautiful Human expression of cultural background.

Australians make "The Number of the Beast" sound like a song about a gang bang.

I work with a Geordie, and her accent only really comes out when she's angry. So, all the time. :lol:

Also work with a lot of Irish. Sometimes I know they're speaking English, but it sounds like a foreign language.

I love some of the Polynesian accents. They drink "peer" down at the "bub".

Also love listening to West Indians, like Michael Holding commentating at the cricket. Put him alongside Bumble on the first day of a test match and I'm in heaven! And then Shane Warne will pipe up, and ruin it all.

Birmingham, every time I've gone there for Supersonic and have to sit around listening to locals talk I just can't help but think "fuck, I've got three days of this!"

I deal with many people from Teesside on a daily basis and I must agree, I wish the whole area would just slip into the North Sea.

Worst accent?

Probably Scouse.

Although the "Yardie" accent that's cropping up here and there is a close second.

^ The strong NZ accent is one of my least favourites, but I dislike the American accent more; I would have chosen American instead, but for whatever reason I didn't see it on the list.

My sister in law and one of my nieces have accents like that. They sound retarded. Actually, I think my sister in law is.

Sith Ifriken reminds me a lot of the strong NZ accent. Both of them can fuck off.
