People Break Down Which Accents Are The Most Attractive

Accents are anthropological, sociological constructs that are fascinating for human ears.

Someone speaking the same language as you, with the same rules as the language you are using, but with an affectation that you can hear but possibly can't quite place? It's wonderful.


It's also a huge identifier that will tell you things about where that person is from; the culture they grew up in; and where they've spent their adult life.

u/sh*ttyirishteen asked:

What accent do you find the most attractive?

Here were some of those answers.


Gears, See!

Transatlantic. Really gets my gears going.

The 40s movie accent? Apparently that one didn't really exist, came from it being taught as proper pronunciation in schools around the turn of the last century and became the "Hollywood" accent for a while.

I literally clicked on this thread because I'm Irish, I felt curious as to where the Irish accent would fall on the list.

I don't personally understand how anyone likes the accent honestly, but I'm vaguely validated too... So yes, OP planned this.

I like posh English accent but not Royalty posh, Emma Watson posh.

She has exactly the sort of accent you'd expect from Hermione - upper middle class privately educated daughter of dentists

Truly, the proper accent can make us just swoon.

Oy, Mate

Australian. I was once slacking off in the first day of my second semester of physics in high school. Trying to sleep through the class and the teacher called me out to answer a question. I was a cocky jock at the time and just blew him off and put my head back down. (In all honesty I had done well in the class prior so he let me get away with it, he was a really cool teacher).

As I was getting my head comfortable again I heard the most angelic voice come from behind me and answer the question. I had not even noticed that we had a new student in the class who was a foreign exchange student from australia. I fell in love immediately. Nothing I could do would woe her but we became good friends. Still to this day that accent gets me.

I think Scottish is really cute to listen to.

Get David Tennant, James McAvoy and Evan Macgregor together and I'm a happy girl. I could listen to any one of them talk for hours.

Take Your Pick

As an American, literally any accent is attractive.

How about a female south side Chicago accent, I grew up there and now that I've been away I sometimes find it funny.

They Always Win

Travelled quite a bit. England, South Korea, Japan, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and Germany.

Aussie women win.

I watch Masterchef Australia, but refuse to watch Masterchef America. Just for the accents.

What is it that makes us swoon? Is it the rounded "claw" sound? Is it the tall "a" sound?

Time For Some Underrated Love

Women from Jamaica or West Africa have the most underrated accents ever. That is godly.

Yes. Agree. But men and women for me, I'm greedy

Welsh, Taron Egerton has the best.

I'm pretty sure Huw Edwards' voice is the main reason my mum watches BBC News

Oh, Ja

German!!!!

I didn't think I liked that accent until I watched the German dude try to woo the Indian woman in Sense8- flirty German is sexy!

Babblewocky

Definitely. I'd listen to a German male talk all day 🤤

If you have a lilt, a twang, or a stiff upper lip, you are someone's cup of tea.

What is the most attractive accent to you?

Life is full of boring things.

Life is full of uninteresting things.

So... if life full?

That's a question for another time.

Let's focus on the things that leave us bored to tears.

Or numb with no feeling at all.

You ever wonder how people get so super involved and jazzed about some stuff and you look at it and all you can do is yawn?

That's our topic.

People Break Down The Biggest Lies That Were Sold To Their Generation

The times do change fast don't they? Everything we think we'll know about the future is usually false.

How much of history is littered with things we thought we'd never be able to do without?

Now we watch movies in our palms. (Instead of theaters.) We send millions of dollars through the air. (Instead of withdrawing in person, or a check.) And we no longer need pennies. (Basically)

Who would have thought?

These were all going to be life essentials.

But generation by generation, the obsolescence takes over.
