Which accent do you least like?

I wasn't too sure which forum to post this in, because it could fit equally well in here, relationships or perhaps even sex, depending upon the context of it.

    Brummie. Or specifically - Dudley. It's horrible.
    Also scouse - especially on girls.

    German is kinda unpleasant and south african grates on me.

    This is actually really interesting *puts university hat on*

    Do you think people's accent affects your perception of them, especially if you don't see them face to face? What factors help to contribute to your attitudes towards say, Southern English and Brummie for example? Does one sound more interesting or intelligent than the other, and if so, what makes it that way?

    Personally I try to be as objective as possible when talking to people, but it is hardest to do so when talking to neds whose English (or Scots) is terrible...

    The whole W. Mids area.

    And Mockney, why do people who grew up in some ass-backward town in the English country insist on adopting a Mockney accent as soon as they move to "the big smoke"?? Twats.

    :mad:

    I hate the Northern Irish accent though.

    Ugghh irish accent does my head in really really gets to me! I think its a throw back from school where we had a reeeeally nasty bitch of a teacher who was irish. When i was watching Melon and everyone in it was irish and it was really good film but the accent was pissing me right off!

    Yeah some (i.e. me, i've no idea why) are well spoken.

    I think my brother has a Saafampton accent, though.

    Chalk and cheese!

    I suppose it's like mockney + hampshire = soton...

    Not that I'm sure what Mockney is, though...is it like cockney?

    That`s the idea. As for Benny Hill... ever heard that song, Ernie, he drove the fastest milkfloat in the west? That was him.
