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.

South England/US or Australia by far, second the Kiwi accent.

All I can say is I do not like the NY accent

Yeah it is but on some people it can sound very sexy. Think its the tone of voice that people have too.

I love the Australian accent, or a soft Southern US accent. I cant stand the Midwest/Chicago accent.

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!

The southern belle accent sounds pretty for like 20 minutes then I start to lose interest in the conversation because she is talking too slowly.

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!

But I never stopped talking the accent!

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).

I could listen to a South African speak all day. It wouldn't even matter what they were saying, their accents are so great. The Welsh also have nice accents I find.

My least favourites are Australian and some of the heavies from Southern USA.
