After i read Cory6188's post about accents in English, I was thinking about accent. I have heard lots of people are falling with love in Aussie accent. I dont understand why they love to hear aussie accent? What does aussie accent sound like?
I know I've been living Australia for several years and i dont think that australian accent are attractive to me.

Ah yeah, mate! When you're out bush and a bit crook for some fair dinkum tucker, grap Judge Tennant's goggles off the dunny lid, wipe the crap and flies off them, let them roast on a rock awhile in the Aussie heat, chuck some cooking oil (beer) on them, then nab some eggs, may be chook, emm, but preferably turtle eggs, place the goggles on the rock and let them fry. Bonza!

For me is the the perfect mix between British flavour (as much as Australians try to deny it, the Australian accent is the closest accent to the English accents of any other out there) and a relaxed style of talking that is so cool. British are too proper, the North Americans are too anal and uptight when we speak, but the Kiwis, Australians, and South Africans (as so rightly mentioned by CPDC-10-30. I have a colleague from Durban and I love her accent) speak in a style that's a bit more carefree. And, not surprisingly, the Australian accent is frequently used in advertising here in the States just because of its pulling power.
Edit: For instance. The proper title of this thread should be 'Why Do People Love The Australian Accent?'. But, in typical Aussie fashion, the author didn't see the need for those pesky two and three letter words and left them out. That's why we love it!

well... Inside the topic box has limited letters...that's why I cannot add "do" and "the". Yeah i have trouble to add "the" in the sentence structures. My teacher told me not to use "the" all the time in my essay and report.
