    Why, Northeast Texas accent! We have a little bit of Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and some Oklahoma. All blended to create that perfect country-fied accent where 'i' sounds like 'a' and one syllible words become two!

    All those 30-odd years ago when I was in England, the Brits seemed to REALLY love a southern drawl. I happily obliged in occasion since my mother's side are all proper southerners from all over the south. Hence, I have a drawl but as Uncle Cecil from Oklahoma said, "Dan, ya'all have a drawl, but ewe ain't from nowhar."

    wink

      I was in Dublin with my (American) fiancée a few months back, she has just a little bit of trouble understanding a word you guys say!

      We did meet some actors in temple bar, got stoned, then snuck in to a night club though, was pretty fun!

    As an Australian I love almost all the accents I have heard across America, I love the Irish, south African accents as well. I have been passed off as a Texan for a joke by one of my Californian friends, and everyone bought it. Apparently some (only some) Texans sound a bit like my Melbourne drawl.

    I loved the Phillie and Hawaiian accents I've heard on my travels to the states.

    To be honest, I love to hear any accent when it's different to my rough Scottish accent.

    Irish and Welsh accents are really cool, had to mention although this is a favourite American accent forum.

    my husband is from Liverpool, and i used to live there.  We lived right near the two football grounds, a little nearer to Anfield, i swear if you get a bus from Anfield, and travel into town on a Saturday afternoon, or evening, it is a delight to hear the accent and the banter, even better in the football ground.  Their accent and personal touch is second to none.  Sorry not overly familiar with American accents.  Now Manchester England, that is some accent,

    I like all the different accents. though when I lived on Long Island it was hard to figure out at first. and of course I was laughed at because of my drawl too. lol 

    as for my favorite accents abroad I'd have to say jamaican, welsh, scottish, german.
