    Belfast, which is my own accent. It sounds alright when I'm talking to other people from there, but when you hear people on the telly from Belfast it's awful. And my flatmates can't understad what I'm saying sometimes when I'm at uni (in England).

    Liverpool...not that I dislike it, just find it difficult to understand :P Was working once, and some guy was talking to me...I wasn't sure he was even talking in English, it took me a couple of moments to realise he just had a really ​strong Liverpudlian accent.

    Ok so seeing as there is a "Sexist Accents" topic (of which i've posted in), i thought i'd go the other way and create one for the worst accents or "Turn off Accents"

    Me:

    German
    Russian
    Typical American
    Redneck American
    Greek
    Ukraine

    As you can see most of them (for me at least) are mainly very punchy, sharp sometimes angry languages, i've always said that even if you're complimenting someone in German, it sounds like you're insulting them cos of the brutality of the words compared to those of Italian, French or Spanish
    im not sure but i don't like indian accents i think this is because they are overly used in a comedic sense. all other accents melt me like butter :daydreaming:

    Liverpool

    Why do they say 'me nan'?
    It means ''my grandmother''. I thought 'Nan' was widely used? 'Me' gets used in front of almost anything to replace 'my' e.g. ''me phone, me car, me cat, me socks'', whatever. It's just their pronunciation of 'my'.

    Hardly anyone I know says nan, it sounds soo annoying. They usually say grandma/gran

    Nigerian grates my ears usually, but it sounds nice on some people

    Liverpudlian however, drives me up the bloody walls. That, and whatever Stacey Dooley is.

    Pretty much all the North American accents with the exception of that really stereotypical New York one. Also the Australian and White South African one. I don't dislike the Irish accent, but I can never understand why so many people find it so alluring.

    Really posh English accents like Joanna Lumley. I would rather hear a full on Scouse or Cockney accent over that tbh.
