Nobody's perfect



Yeah it's pretty good from my experience of the course and the people on it. I'm a part-time postgrad who lives in Leeds though - I'm only in uni 1 day a week, so I don't really have any wider experience of the place. I've never been to the union - my social life there revolves around the pubs near the station so I can get back home again in a reasonable amount of time!

ahh ok thanks! i'm going there next year so yeah just wanted to know what its like there

Hmm.. not sure, just doesn't really appeal to me in a fanciable way.

I can put up with it though... I have to as I live there!
ha it is quite common though, although i think it sounds proper down to earth and approachable

Slight west-country twang I love the sound of! Welsh and Geordie also. Brum accents make you want to pat them on the head and go "aww".

I don't think accents can make a person more attractive but some are pretty off-putting eg. very strong Scouse, general Lancashire, Scottish and God forbid the "East-end" cockney.

I love Geordie, Welsh, Scottish and West Country accents, as well as the 'posh university accent'.

I detest pretty much all the northwestern accents and am not a fan of the Black Country one either.

I love the Irish accent on girls. Other than that, no.

I prefer it to some of the ridiculously posh rah-type students you get in Leeds from other parts of the country, as I'm fairly common myself. I tend to find Yorkshire people not too approachable to outsiders (like southerners!), but when you get to know them they're genuine and friendly types

I want a girlfriend with a Liverpool accent.
Why, though? i mean i never thought people liked scouse that much and all... and so many of my friends try and tone it down a bit when we go on holiday ect. I recently went to stay with friends in newcastle and when we went out, bar staff could hardly understand a word i said!

But yeah, irish is sexy :p:

yep and its well known that most of us will help anyone, in places like london people dont really give a crap about other people, say in the street they'll just barge past and not say sorry whereas most yorkshire folk are small towners and usually are more polite etc

I like Wirral accents, I think they sound a lot different to your standard modern-day broken radio scouse accents. I've got a slight one because I live literally around the county borders and some people have thought I was Welsh :confused:

thats true to a certain extent about people in london, however that is simply due to the fact that half the people in london dont come from around here, most of the are tourists (and are ruuuuddee!). But overally we are just as polite/ down to earth (if not more) than yorksire people ...

Firstly, it's exotic. Scousers use phonemes that no one else in Britain uses. Secondly, it sounds really sweet. Yeah, it can sound abrasive too, but all accents grate when they're used in an aggressive way. When softly spoken, it's the sweetest accent I can think of, the way it goes up and down, the way that words are drawn out, drawn in and spoken with a swung rhythm. It's like a song. Lastly, everybody seems to hate it, and it's my instinct to want to protect things that are cute and vulnerable.

i really dont enjoy all this yorkshire hating... whats wrong with the accent?
There's nothing wrong with it, it just makes people smile and think of old, slightly fat farmers. And that's just not sexy.
