My favourite accent is that British Emo girl one, you know the slightly highpitched and excitable but then sometimes dim one.

Nothing like a good old bit of accent-bashing and generalising, eh?

Presumably you mean accents when speaking English? In which case, as a general rule I much prefer regional accents. The provincial twang tends to add a warm quality to a voice that makes it colourful and interesting to listen to.

I adore soft Geordie, Scouse, Yorkshire, most Irish accents, a host of Scottish accents and Welsh accents. In Europe, I love French, German and Dutch accents. In North America, it's US deep South and West coast, and Ontario, Canada. In Australia, Western Australian and South Australian accents are my favourite.

Not a big fan of thick Mancunian or Leeds accents, Spanish, Italian or Greek accents, the US mid-west or East coast accents. Most of all, I dislike almost every accent from London and its surrounding area.

Received Pronunciation - proper, traditional, Queen's English. Such a shame that it's a rarity these days.
