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

Tom22174

Oh, Ja

German!!!!

weaponizedpastry

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?

People Break Down Which Things Everyone Needs To Hear But No One Has The Guts To Say

There is nothing more frustrating than the things we cannot say, but desperately want to.

Sometimes, we might find ourselves in situations where we are positively desperate to speak up, but for whatever reason can't.

Even though we know deep down, that people will be better off, or things might run more smoothly if we said something.

Redditor MCKlassik was curious to hear the things that people would benefit from hearing, but will likely never be told, leading them to ask:

"What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people?"

People Explain Which Movies Were So Brutal They Had To Stop Watching Them

Before we get started, let's just say that everyone's tolerance levels are different. What might be an okay watch for your might be the worst experience ever for someone else. Our tastes are different and that's what makes film brilliant. We can share our thoughts, our feelings, and our experience with one another and see a work of art through someone else's eyes.

Films can be challenging in what they're trying to say, and if that challenge is too much to answer, don't feel bad for having to turn something off.

Being a law-abiding citizen shouldn't be that difficult.

As long as people obey the rules, maintain their morals, and avoid making extremely bad decisions, they will never see the walls inside a prison cell.

I know we're a culture full of over the top whiners.

We love to go on and on about all the things that bother us.

And all of the life impediments that stand in the way of our happiness.

But we need to dial it down a notch.

There is a difference between actual bodily harm and an inconvenience.

Redditorseesnawsnappywanted to mull over what aspects of life make us feel like actual pain but maybe we're exaggerating. They asked:

"What isn't torture but feels like it?"
