Silliest accents

What makes your list of shame?

5. Boston - the rumours are all true

4. South African - pure comedy

3. New Zealander - I can’t take them seriously

2. Israeli - heinous kh-kh-kh noises

1. Black British aka Multi-Cultural London English AS SPOKEN BY WOMEN (men sound fine) - makes me physically sick because they sound like they’re spitting out mouthfuls of food

Dishonourable mentions to Queenslanders from my native Australia, Cantonese and Québécois.

I normally find the “original” version of a language to be the prettiest, like French in France and English in England — But I’ll make an exception for Spanish.

Spanish in Spain usually sounds silly, especially with the lisp. It sounds much better in Latin-America.

I tend to find (American) Southern accents musical and charming but I have met 5 different people of 3 separate ethnicities from swampiest Mississippi and I failed to understand 2/3 words.

Ditto during my uni years a very recent Egyptian expat who was my economics lab tutor. He was so nice that no one complained to faculty.

My Great Lakes flatness - overly pronounced consonants, a flat grin on the vowels as if we’re going to start slurring or spitting.

This is the opposite of sexy.

Dublin accents with the hard t: turty tree and a turd. And it's really mumbly if you're not used to it.

Northern Irish accents are bizarre.

Cajun accents sound silly and almost like a put-on.
