Quoting Ndebelebev (Reply 1): Favourite has to be the Scouse accent due to a certain man in my life at the moment.... its not a too heavy Scouse accent but its there. I have trouble understanding the Scots sometimes tho.

A man without the knowledge of his past history,culture and origins is like a tree without roots

Quoting Midwest717 (Reply 7): The worst is the upper Midwest accent with the really nasal sounding "o's" That's one of the things I really hate about living in Wisconsin. The accent is driving me crazy!
Oh yah, I feel the same way don'cha know....

NY-Bronx(New Yoke!) and a Dublin accent!
I picked up a long island accent from my grandmother when I was a little boy crossing the pond each year in the summer. She was married with a dude from the Bronx and she now lives in between Buffalo and Rochester.
I had problems with the US accent once I "learned" english at school...
In Belgium you need to talk Oxford english in school, and they use complelely different words...
I often got a subway for a tube, a restroom for a toilet and a cab for a taxi wrong in exams!

Well, I could listen to Her Majesty all day long and enjoy, or Prince of Wales.
I like challenging accents (Scottish, Irish, even the one from "Eastenders). It is too easy to watch BBC documentaries and enjoy the accent.
As for the US, I like Chicago and their accent, but, again, I love challenges, so if I ever visit the United States, I woulsd love to spend some time in the southern states of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, etc. just to listen to them (and to try to understand it, as well).
