Oh eyy , of course Jersey is got a sexy accent.

Jersey/NY (same damn thing) accent is annoying as fark.

Canadian? What's a Canadian accent supposed to sound like, exactly? We're pretty geographically dispersed, there's not exactly a uniform accent for the whole nation.

/several Newfie friends of mine are virtually incomprehensible, especially after a beer or two

I have no idear why a Jersey accent would be considered sexy.  No idear at all.

You gotta be shiatting me.  Parisian french is 'zees over zhere' while quebecois is 'dat dere over dere'.  It's comical it is, but sexy it ain't.

Truth be told, no one in Canada actually talks like Bob and Doug Mackenzie (except for some stereotypical newfie pockets). That's just a joke we play on Americans. Most Canadians sound like standard American English (ie: nightly news anchors, which half of them are Canadian, and are recruited as such for their neutral dialect).
 
2013-10-22 05:33:16 PM
...blink blink ... what? I can't tell if you think that's a good thing or a bad thing.

I love Jersey accents. And Jersey women. And Jersey women with Jersey accents.

You're missing out.

My freshman year college roommate was Canadian. He and his mother were like a living Mackenzie skit.

You smoke crack if you think someone who says "dat char c'est blu" for "that car is blue" and calls it French is sexy.

Anything is preferable to a Yinzer accent.
 
2013-10-22 05:45:37 PM
Most annoying Canadian dialect I have ever come across was "Ukrainian hoser", this kind of high, flat tone, with kind of an upspeak, and "eh" was practically every second word.  And. this. eh  man eh. spoke eh. very eh. slowly eh.

This was in Eastern Saskatchewan, about a 8 KM from the Manitoba border. Not a standard Canadian accent by any stretch.,

Apparently they think everyone sounds like newfies here. It's kind of the same as saying everyone in the states has a southern drawl.....the same as in stupid.

I imagine variants of the stereotypical "Canadian accent" exist in the rural bumfark areas, but I don't go to rural bumfark Canada so I'm not exposed to it. Been to the major cities there often enough though and generally the English I heard was without any strong, noticeable dialect.

dwrash: Anything is preferable to a Yinzer accent.


As a fellow Yinzer, I agree. With guys, its bad but tolerable. when a girl has a thick Yinzer accent, its horrible sounding.
 
2013-10-22 06:11:13 PM
New Jersey accent "among 5 'sexiest' in North America", you have got to be kidding me. It has to be the most appalling sounding accent there is. A person whining through blocked sinuses would sound better.

Mind you the actual figures are that seven percent of those polled found it sexy. That they were all from New Jersey is the only explanation.

This.

Grew up near, and went to college in Yinzburgh.  Everyone at my school was from NY/NJ.  Freshman year, I dated a girl, from Lon-Gisland named "Jennafah".  Her sister's name was "Andrear".

Because, like the USA, we have very distinct regions, some of which have their own accents, and some which don't.

Though to be fair, I guess if I had to be stereotypical, I could approximate an "American" accent, talk through my nose, drawl out words, speak very loudly, etc.

You've never been to the Ottawa Valley have you?


To get that Ottawa Valley accent: Sound vaguely Irish/Newfie, and talk real fast out of the side of your mouth without moving your jaw. End every sentence with a high nasal "eh?"

Funny, all the American woman that I used to talk to used to say how sexy my accent was, and the two that I met pretty much proved it.
 
2013-10-22 07:10:21 PM
Least sexy accent: the North Woods/Yooper. Very nasaly, lots of "dese", "dats", and "dose" -- a mix of the worst components of Yinzer, Chicagoese, and Canadian accents.

The Joisey accent might be sexy, but those are the kind of people you'd sooner fark and then forget before you find out how big of a douchenozzle they are. Same with Southerners -- get in, get out before you stick around to hear the vilest, most racist things coming out of their pie-holes,

To me, it sounds more like "a boat," and I hear it from people all across Canada.
 
2013-10-22 07:17:33 PM
What's funny is that the sterotypical accent - "Hey yous guys, we're from Joisey" is more of a NY(specifically, Bronx/Brooklyn) accent. I don't know a single person from NJ that says "Joisey" that isn't from NY originally.

"About" seems to sound more Canadian the farther east you go. No one says "aboot", but we also don't say "abaoowwwt" like Americans.

Another thing I find odd about American accents: Why don't sorry and lorry rhyme? I had my friend from Rochester say them, and I got "saw-ree" and "lorry".

I heard the kids on DeGrassi Junior High. They sounded Canadian.
