106 WhenAllElseFail California here. I don't even know what my 'accent' sounds like.
34 fjkfdjklfljksdfjlksd dislike. Im from the highlands of scotland. it makes me cringe
30 chiwowah Many people assume I'm stuck up or annoying because my accent is Received Pronunciation and is "posher" than those around me, even though I have lived in the same place all my life. After I got past the constant teasing in school, people actually tell me they love my voice, which is nice. I've definitely grown to like my accent. Still sound like a wanker, but I'm fond of it.
42 dokwilson74 Southern guy from Texas here. My accent is slight, but noticable when I talk with people from out of town. I love it, I'm not obnoxiously southern, but I do have that twang. Unless I drink, then I turn into a hick.
21 micron429 I like and dislike my accent. I am from the southern U.S. and have a very heavy southern accent. I am not ashamed of it now. I just don't like the typical stereotypes that come with it.
15 Fall_Of_Arcadia Glaswegian, love going to other countries and watching their face melt when I start speaking
11 MrCinematic Boston, pretty much non-existent compared to lots of my friends and family but when Im at school out of state it gets noticed pretty often. Alcohol or frustration can make the accent wicked fuckin' bad dood
11 neko I have a General Midwestern accent, with a tinge of Upper Midwestern. I like it except when I try to say bagel.
11 -Words-Words-Words- I grew up on Long Island, home of mawls, cawfee and Oh moy gawd! I went to college in Western New York (Buffalo) where I lost my accent over the 4 years. A few years back I spoke with a linguist who bet he could name where I grew up... he picked Kansas and was shocked when I told him Long Island. My wife grew up 3 blocks from me and has NEVER lost her accent.
9 Wafflecakeandbacon I have a heavy stereotypical Asian accent and I have a huge habit of saying y'all so it just sounds really weird.
10 [deleted] I am from the South. Most of the time I don't have a really strong Southern accent, but if I'm tired or mad it comes out, and there are some words I can't help but pronounce like a redneck. I don't dislike the accent itself, I dislike everyone's reaction to the fact that I'm from the South. I think "Southerner-shaming" is actually a real thing that happens. Southerners are the only big group that it's still trendy to say is stupid based on factors beyond their control. I used to do a lot of freelance software development. I started having a lot better success getting responses and landing clients (even clients in the South) when I removed all geographic references from all of my 'marketing' (website, resume, business card, email signature) information. Like a notably better rate, with nothing else really significantly changed. And there have been times where a client would need my address for some purpose and I heard, more than once "Alabama? You don't *seem* like someone from Alabama. Did you grow up there?" And if you need one more point to convince you that southerner-shaming is a thing - remember back when those crazy Oregon militia guys took over that wildlife refuge? Remember the name given to them - Y'all-Queda? Yeah, it was very clever. And it was using a word [from the South](https://i.imgur.com/Y7kiCqs.jpg) to describe a bunch of idiots primarily from Oregon and Nevada, simply because they were a bunch of idiots. Southern colloquialisms are literally associated with being stupid, to the point that you can use them to describe people not in or from the South if they are being stupid.
8 Klaudiapotter I have a lower Midwest accent. Sounds pretty nondescript, but there's a little southern/country twang to it. This is a pretty poor rural area, so unfortunately my spoken grammar is terrible lmao.
8 EverydayImSlytherin All those people are talking about dialects while I have a German accent. I live in Germany, but it's very noticeable when I speak English for puns that only work in English.
4 SigmaTheDJ I don't really have an opinion either way. It's sort of a "neutral" English accent, so there's no regional twang to it really. There are certainly regional UK accents I dislike and I'm glad that I don't have, but at the same time that doesn't really make me like my own. I have got a fair number of comments from non-UKers I game online with who think my accent is cool, but then I think theirs is cool too, while they also think their own accents are nothing special, so it's just a case of what you're used to.
6 Novakcain I'm from Liverpool and I don't mind my own voice because it's very deep and it masks the generic high-pitched accent, but whenever I hear another scouser on the telly or someone pissed on a bus I fucking cringe so much
4 FierceMundy I'm from where Hot Fuzz was filmed so that will give you a general idea... I don't mind it aha
4 MaybeNotEvenMe Danish here. And not when I'm speaking English or French, but it is fine for my mother tongue. See the problem is that Danish is a very 'flat' language; we do not really have much intonation, it is quite monotone. Probs why there's that potato-mouth stereotype. And that, sadly, translates into my English and French. Besides that, I've always struggled with the "th" sound in English, because it isn't used in Danish in the same way. Once had to say the number 180.000 - holy pinecone, I f'ed that up so bad. Edit: grammar
4 travellingcats Scottish here. Both adore and despise my accent because in the UK certain "regional" accents are associated with the working classes and with a lack of education. I'm from a rougher area and my accent shows it. My mother is half Irish and I have a slight Irish lilt in my voice too. Now that I'm at a fairly pretentious university I feel my accent makes me stick out more and I've even been called "common" by one shall we say financially well endowed classmate. I'm well spoken and am actually a teacher on the side and yet I feel it's hard to be taken seriously with my accent.
