I hate it. It sounds uneducated and reminds me of chavs and farmers. Is there such thing as a 'posh' Yorkshire accent?

To be honest, I hate all accents from Up North. :yep:

I'm from Bradford and the accent sounds awful, saying that though I talk reasonably well as I had a good upbringing and was taught to speak well.

Birmingham accent is hot!! Essex is by far the best!!

I'm from Leeds, so my accent isn't exactly "pure Yorkshire," but i'm really not a fan of my accent.

I just get the impression that after meeting somebody for the first time, they think i'm an uneducated idiot, which I certainly am not.

Also, I don't really like the patronising that it's possible to get after talking to people for the first time. For example, I went to a medlink course at Nottingham (put me off medicine), and there were quite a few people from the midlands there, as was there people from Grantham in Lincolnshire.

After speaking to them for a few minutes, they became enamored with my accent, shouting over their friends to listen to me speak, saying how cute it was. At first I thought it was pretty funny, but I quickly realised that they were having a joke at my expense, continually correcting me on my pronunciation and laughing. Even once saying to a group of us Leodensians, "You can't talk whilst we're walking in here, Leeds people, they'll think we're rabble and throw us out."

They were being deadly serious.

I'm from Yorkshire, and apparently I don't have one. People say I sound like I come from down South :rolleyes:

How does that work out?
It's called Ampleforth.

I like my accent! I've been chatted up a few times at a bar after some girl overhears my accent..... I really don't think it's that strong though but I assume to someone from the south it could be noticeable.

Some bits are adorable, mostly it's dire.

A partner with a Yorkshire twinge = cute.
A mother-in-law with a broad Yorkshire accent = cringe.

I love it. It's definitely my favourite Northern accent; I think it sounds really cute.

It's Leodians actually...

I agree about the prejudices against the accent being irritating. On my first day at Uni I was asked if I carry a knife (WTF?!) and made fun of numerous times.
TBH I don't care if people like it/dislike it, as long as they keep their prejudices to themselves and don't prejudge me based on my accent.

I personally love having a regional accent, especially one from Yorkshire. I'm very proud of where I come from, and my accent is a part of that. I love all regional accents, and don't prejudge anyone based on their voice

Dammit, I was swaying between Loiner, Leodensian, and Leodian.

I would have to pick the wrong of the three, wouldn't I? :o:

EDIT: And how do you know that I don't go to Leeds Gammar School

Hhaahaha, been bummed by a monk yet? How many are still in the nick, was about 4 last time I bothered to check, but that was a good couple of years ago. Might have released a few by now...

Yorkshire accents are ok, I dont have a very strong one despite being a farmer, but East Yorkshire in general doesnt have strong accents. Some people pick it up, and some dont understand the words I use, but I get by. Wouldnt want a Barnsley one or a very strong one, sound common. Fred Dibnah has a good accent. Complete lack of H+S as well..........

I really like the Yorkshire accent, although I havent really heard any rural ones...I love the Sheffield and York accents, I have a little cousin age 6 from York and he sound like a gruff old Yorkshireman when he talks, bless! I also like what Ive heard of the accent in my boyfriends home area (north Lincolnshire)
I didn't know people were so prejudiced, thinking you must be stupid if you have an accent. Bit of a harsh attitude
