    Default "Who has the more annoying accent"

    In response to that question ( Peguy), I was wondering who you consider to have the "more" annoying English accent.

    ---

    And if you want to elaborate a little bit further, we could separate this question into two sub categories:

    1/ Most annoying accent for native English speakers

    2/ Most annoying accent for non-native English speakers

    ---

    Of course, if you feel more optimistic than pessimistic ( Lark), you can feel free to tell which accent you prefer too!

    I've heard that americans pick new england as the "worst"

    I like the English accent, used to love it until I spent a lot of time talking to an english accent-er and got used to it.

    The "posh" Home Counties accent. They sound "relajado" to say it in Spanish

    Hard to translate the word exactly, it roughly translates as "creepy"/"perverted". It's like there's no drive to get the words out, they just kind of drool out of the mouth. And they sound like their nose is bunged up all the time too.

    Certain people, incredibly annoying people, when they talk, regardless of their particular accent, have jarring voices.

    So... yeah.

    Anyway, to keep it short:

    1/ For native English speakers:

    Worst accent: Aussie

    It sounds so full of bloody testosterone.

    Prefered accent: Scottish

    The way they stroll the "r" is very similar to the way a Frenchman would. Hence it's often deceptively easy to understand (at least for us), despite the colourful and unique vocabulary used in Robert Burns's poems and in the suburbs of Glasgow.

    ---

    2/ For non-native English speakers

    Worst accent: Tamil

    Prefered accent: Russian -it sounds very melodious-

    It's interesting.

    So far, it seems we have to clear consensus.
