New York accents are an assault on the ear.  They make baby Jesus cry.  It indicates that the South doesn't have a monopoly on hicks...

You gotta be kidding me

Next to the Masshole accent, the NYC accent is brutal.

There is this commercial I hear all the time on SeriusXM. Dudes name is Jimmy and he plugs the anti-snoring product Zyppah. I would prefer snoring over hearing that dude again.

They're saying people from different regions in Europe have different preferences.  Is it significant, or just statistal noise?

My husband and I are both from NY/NJ and I've made a concerted effort not to talk that way (or should I say 'tawk dat way').  I used to make fun of him because of it and his is not half as bad as some I've heard.

If I had to pick a sexy American accent, I'd have to go with the Louisiana Cajun/Creole one.  I always like listening to that.  I find it soothing.

I can picture that. Most European accents are tinny and hard edged. The further north on the east coast you go, the more abrasive the accent, which is what they are used to.

css:  An old neighbor that had grown up in NYC was horrified by her own accent.    She'd never recognized how she sounded until she got a voice mailbox that required her to record an outgoing and an incoming message.   She dutifully recorded what she hoped was a professional-sounding set of messages and then the system played them back to her so she could confirm.     The next day she told me about it, and then asked, 'Do I really sound like that !?!'.    I did keep the smile off my face whilst I told her that, 'Well, 'Yes', I've always been able to tell that you were from NY.'    She vowed that very minute to try to rid herself of ''that sound''...

Of all the American English accents, i think I prefer the Minnesotan/Wisconsin accent. It's not really attractive, but it delights my ears to hear it.

What's to like?  The overt nasal whine of Cockney on steroids combined with a sort of southern-US drawl, all mashed up with words created by handing a bag of Srabble letters to a 5 year old?

Sure, "all the more for you", gladly.

I grew up in South Florida.  My parents were from NYC and my dad had an Archie Bunker style Queens accent that my friends were fascinated by.

It was pointed out to me the other day that picked up a very NY speech pattern....
I say, "Grab that THING of milk over there." Not carton or glass, but "thing".

I had no idea I did that or that it was a Northeast thing.  Or that it drives certain Southerners nuts.
 
2018-03-12 08:59:38 AM  
Thank God for the neutral Minnesotan accent.

"Bostonian tone"? It's not a tone, it's braying. Like a jackass.

What's hilarious is how so many people use a Brooklyn (real Brooklyn, not Ohio-raised-transplant-with-a-trust-fu​nd-Brooklyn) accent to mimic a Jersey accent. Most people in Jersey actually don't have an accent.

I grew up in Queens as the son of Czech immigrants. I live in VA now and spent mid to late teens years in DC, so I have mostly gotten rid of the New York sound, except when drunk. After a couple it creeps in.....when full blown hammered I might as well be Joe Pesci, that's how bad it gets. At least that's what I'm told.

Wait wait....South African white or South African black accent, because if black, then you couldn't be more wrong. I find black African accents sexy as I dunno what. Black Panther was like a candy store of sexy lady accent for me.

I just can't take someone with a New York accent seriously. A roommate's boyfriend a long time ago at UF had one (first real NY accent I had ever met). He was a great guy and wanted to be a teacher. But damn, that accent. There was no way he would be able to teach in Florida unless he did early elementary where the kids wouldn't really notice.

I like Bostonian accents. New York is okay, but anything near Buffalo/North Tonawanda/Cheektowaga where the aww sound (like in 'god' or 'rock') turns to aah ('gad' and 'rack') grates on my nerves.

Southern accents can be quite nice. I know there's a variation but even just the slower speech can be soothing.

I have a Philadelphia accent, but only shows up when I talk to another Philly person. I've been abroad a while.

I ran into a guy from Philly in Vietnam. Both Vietnamese and expat friends who came up to say hey, asked, "Why are you talking like that?/You sound different." 'Tis not an accent that flows like wooder, gaiz.
 
2018-03-12 09:24:58 AM  
Moved around my whole life, so I have been keen on dialects, I think.

Living in Philly I remember a commercial, I think it was for the Flyers season tickets, or a comcast thing, anyway the guy they had on was a character actor who'd been in lots of things, overt New York (Brooklyn) accent...  while it has certain levels of vulgarity in the way certain syllables are forced or dropped, it is totally different from the main Philly dialect. I thought it was pretty lame to have such an obvious NY accent for a what was supposed to be a Philly guy. Just annoying as it seemed the person who cast it thinks all east coast city dwellers sound the same.

When I was a kid I moved from Florida (Niceville) to Germany. I guess I had a really strong southern accent because the first kids I met thought I might be "special" because of how I talked. Now my dialect is somewhere between Southwest/Surfer/Canadian...   depending on drinking and activity.

The White 'Afrikaan' accent was what I was beefing on.   You know, the one that makes the name "Mark" sound like "Maaahk".

I find men have more of the Jersey accent than women, although I've heard women with it.  My husband doesn't think he has an accent, but he definitely does.  He was born in the Bronx and raised in northern NJ.

Heh, have a friend who grew up on the South Shore in MA (the home of the real "Boston" accent).  She worked for years to rid herself of that affliction, but it would still pop up in certain circumstances.  I was speaking to her one day and she was describing a recent trip she took to Martha's Vineyard, only when she said it, it came out full blown South Boston - "Maaathaaas Vinyaaad".  I think the long moment of silence as I digested what she'd said clued her in and she replayed it in her mind, and said, "Oh my God did I just say that?"  There must be something about proper names that you don't correct for accents when you say them.

Lest I invite too much wrath or bad karma on this topic:
In fairness to my own issues, the link below is what any second-generation Canadian sounds like who didn't grow-up in a city.    I do not talk like this day-to-day, but, if I moved back out the rural area I grew-up in it probably wouldn't take too long.  As well, while I didn't grow-up in south western Ontario (where "Letterkenny" is based on), I did grow-up in rural central Ontario so the accent is basically the same:

I'm torn. Can't decide if I like the New York Jewish sound (think Fran Drescher laying it on thick) or a heavy magnolia drenched soft Southern drawl. The attitude of the former winds my watch and the warmth of the latter makes me melt (oh what ever happened to you Angela W?).

As far as foreign languages go, I'm kind of jealous of this guy.

Same could be said for a Scottish accent or southern US accent.
