I can't stand them.

i really like southern accents, but then i dont have to be around them all the time so they might get annoying i suppose

There is such a wide variety of Southern accents, and they run the gamut from charming to annoying.

I agree with UL. Ive heard some very pleasant southern accents and some awful ones.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/20/03 - 4:59:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
dunno - never heard it

I think it is more about vocal timbre than it is accent.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/20/03 - 6:30:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
eh ??
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/20/03 - 6:31:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
I like them:)

I'm not a huge fan of real twangy accents, but I love the type of accent that people from Georgia have.

i love italian / new jersey accents

"Eh," what, jolia? Timbre? It pertains to vocal qualities specific to the individual. Some people have voices that sound pleasing; others don't.

sorry didn't know what u meant i'm a bit thick like that
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/20/03 - 6:54:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
Um, as UL said, it depends. Typically, I just wish they talked a wee bit quicker.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/20/03 - 6:56:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
i just love the italian / spanish kind of accent as well as a american italian accent **big grin **

I like my Southern accect... most of time time.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/20/03 - 8:37:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
any accent can be charming..as long as you can understand what the other person is saying..otherwise it would be annoying..
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 5/20/03 - 9:03:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
I can stomach southern accents much better than I can that nasaly, east coast accent. Uggh...nothing like ruining a cute female (face) with a horrid NYC or east coast accent...blah.

i love southern accents and the charm that many southern guys have. for me its a major turn on.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 7/25/03 - 1:18:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
They're cool.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 7/25/03 - 1:50:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with Uptown, East Coast accents are more annoying than Southern accents, they talk so fast and rudely! Some Southern accents can be annoying if theyre really hickish, like from Tenessee or Alabama, but most are charming. I like Texan accents (hehe I'm partial). My grandparents' accents are cute, I like to listen to them talk.

haha, I'm from Tennessee and I don't talk like a hick. But then again my accent is very muddled since I spent half of my life in NYC, and the other half here.

that really depends on what it is that is coming out of their mouth...
