Disappointed in lack of Canada choices.

French.

Though American mispronunciation/spelling (aloominum, grosheries, jewelry, twot) drives me nuts.

How it sounds to these ears. The C should sound like a hard S.

It is a hard S. At least where I live.

Just when they speak.

Actually, thinking about it: the worst accent is the Dublin 4 one. You'd have to be Irish to 'get' it but think Rachel Wise on Sky Sports, Brian O'Driscoll or even the Bono. A total affectation and about authentic as Dick Van Dyke's cockney accent or whatever the fuck Lloyd Grossman's doing when he speaks.

The 'rising inflection' that Australians use that makes everything they say sound like a question really boils my piss.

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


But you'd have to break it down even further - Georgia is different from Texas is different from Louisiana....

I admit to a prejudice - if any regional southern accent is particularly strong, the sort that turns one syllable words into 3 or 4, I unfairly assume lack of intelligence. I actually have to work against that frequently and have harsh words with myself over it.

I can do the Fargo accent very easily although that's not my accent and I'm generally crap at doing accents - of course I don't think I have one at all.

Regarding the UK I struggle most with Glasgow - I've met people there who were incomprehensible to me, but I felt bad I couldn't understand them. My failure.

I knew a chap from Glasgow whose accent was absolutely impenetrable, to the extent that I'd have to decipher the gist of what he meant from the one out of every ten words I managed to crack. He later confessed that he'd make his accent thicker if he knew the other person was struggling with it.In retrospect, it seems I undertood more than I'd thought I did.
