    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

    How can you not love how German compliments sound?

    "Du siehst wunderschön, heute." :laugh:

    I know what you mean though, ahah... American accents and most of the others you've mentioned are 'annoying'.
    Accents are lovely though, they make people unique

    Oh i know it's what makes people themselves, but still just as people are attracted to different physical traits, people are attracted to certain accents (although for the most part it's Italian and Spanish)

    I completely get what you mean, yes

    I'm just saying that accents in general are pretty awesome.

    I find the polish accent quite unattractive, but that may be because most of the polish women i've met were unattractive and I just associate the accent with them.

    I hate the typical American accent like the way the Kardashian's speak. Ugh. I also don't like Northern accents to an extent - they sound very lazy.
