    Which is exactly why you need that elusive 3rd American accent which you can't hear, because we can. It's like a dog-whistle. We start howling in pain when you can't tell the difference.

    Anyway, joke aside, Welsh accent is typical of an accent strongly influenced by a local language -Welsh aka Cymraeg- that is totally different from English (both in its origins and the way it sounds).
    Well couldn't you say the same for Gaelic Irish/Scots? Just askin'.. honestly don't know if they're exactly comparable situations.

    Oh no, I have nothing against them personally. I just can't stand listening to them talk.

    I'm not a huge fan of the whole English/British (curse my ignorance if they aren't the same) accent. A handful of girls my age drool over it, but I never saw the appeal.

    I like the Boston Brahmin the best. Next best, a refined Scottish accent. Next best something like Mr. Humphries.

    Indeed, the situation is comparable, somehow, with Gaels. But the main difference is that Welsh is still a living language that resisted linguistic integration very well, even today, while on the other hand Gaelic has declined tremendously.

    But the truth is that Gaels (whether from Ireland or Scotland) were oppressed and even ethnocided far more brutally than their Welsh cousins, hence the result.

    My new co-worker is from mid-Michigan and definitely has an accent. EVERYONE has an accent, even those from Southeastern Nebraska.

    There were Canadians that told me I had no accent. I explained that everyone has an accent, and that it was even weirder that Canadians would be telling me that.
