    How could you qualify the accent of the stereotypical urban, sophisticated lover -as perceived by Tex Avery-?

    We have the accent that is for some reason is not considered an accent by most Americans, so I think that hurts the chances of it being picked.

    To foreigners, it seems to be generally lumped in one of two categories (much as Blackmail! demonstrated in his accent thread). It's true, I haven't heard much of people from other countries saying they liked the northern US accent, though.

    EDIT: In case you're confused, no I don't live in the midewest, but somehow tons of people here still supposedly have that accent.

    I like certain English accents, but some sound pretty bland & unextraordinary also.
    Same goes for Australian & New Zealand accents.
    Scottish accents are cute.
    French accents are usually pretty sexy.
    I like Spanish accents from Spain, but only some Latin American accents.
    Brazilian accents are nice.

    And I love my fellow Californian's accents, even when they sound a little like airheads & surfer dudes, hehe.

    I love the Midwestern accent, as well as the various ones found in the Southeast. There are many variations. I also like the Colorado accent, or whatever it would be for that area.

    Well.

    For a foreign ear, Deep South accents are more typical, and hence, more identifiable, more instantly recognized.

    Northern or Midwestern accents are just "standard American", except for the Yankee one. Central Canadian accent is also very similar to it. To speak without noticeable accent often means you speak Midwestern American.

    The Midwestern is pretty easily identifiable if you ask me. I'm not sure where the lowest common denominator for American accents would be, but the Northeast is possible, just as long as they're not directly from a major city such as New York City or Boston. And even then there are some variations. For instance, I say "car-a-mel" whereas people in the Philly metro area say "Car-mel." I grew up in the suburbs of New York City, and my parents are both from there, but I don't have the city's accent.

    Midwestern is the one that national newscasters have. Which probably decreases its sexiness, come to think of it.
