British is lovely, Russian is ugly.

My God, Russian by far.

You don't specify which British accent, posh ones can be quite sexy, but Liverpool girls just sound like slags.

No offence to any scouse ladies.

I agree. It depends on the regional British accent. The posher one is nice and I think the North Wales accent is as well.

I love all kinds of British accents, but my favorite is the English accent.
Russian isn't too nice, though, from what I've heard of it.

Yep british accents are much more diverse and regional than the typical upper class London accent that alot of other countries envisage us having. I prefer the UK's accents to Russian though generally. Im from Southport which is near Liverpool (and Lancashire). And no the Liverpool accent isnt slaggish like some idiot said before!!

Russian is angry. But not as angry as German.

I would say the Russian accent is more lovely. But then, the British accent is commonplace to me. And a Birmingham accent is anything but beautiful.

Russians have a cool language, but not cool accents.
However some british folk sound like they were raised in a gutter, but you'll find that anywhere. They're still nicer, in comparison...

Depends on what you mean by 'British' if youre talking about a posh accent (minus the smily ones) then they are quite nice, but Liverpool and Birmingham accents are horrible. Russian accents are just ugly though
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 3/11/06 - 4:11:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
i don't think *either* is particularly beautiful. i like them both and they're cool but if i was going for beautiful, it'd have to be italian.

By British you don't just mean England ALL of the British Isles are in there. Google it.
I have a northern accent, a non specific one, apparently. I wish I had a North London Accent, I love those.

Ugh, I hate British accents, it's like everything they say translates into "punch me in the face, because i'm annoying".

I like Russian accents, but i'm around them quite a bit.

14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 3/15/06 - 10:38:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think Russian accents are beautiful.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 3/15/06 - 10:52:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
I really wish people would understand that there is not just 1 British accen, there are loads & they all sound totally different.

I really wish you would understand that I'm aware of this.

Oddly, I think that Russian accents are more beautiful, but British accents are more attractive. That probably makes no sense to anyone else.

I'm sure there's not just one Russian accent, either. I don't get why you guys seem to get so upset when someone says 'British accent.' There are tons of American accents, but it doesn't bother me in the slighest if someone refers to 'an American accent.' You rarely, if ever, see someone rant about how there are many different American accents (though there is probably even more variation in American accents than British accents), but it seems that whenever accents are discussed, there are people whining and complaining about how there are many different British accents. Yes, we all get that there is more than one British accent, we don't need you bringing it up every time someone says the word 'accent.'

I hear nothing but british 'accents' all day. Russian seems more 'beautiful' to me, because it's... different.

i wouldn't call the dialect and accent from my town exceptionally beautiful, but that may be considering the fact that i have a southern british accent (not overly posh, but from london all the same). i dont think russian is harsh. i like foreign accents in general. russian is foreign to me, therefore i like it, but i cannot make a comparison between that and british, since i am british

I love men with accents*purrs* and I have had many tourists beg me to speak, because they love the sound of my Boston Accent.

Whatever floats your boat......I love the British and the russian accents *swoons*

nice way to get mum and my sisters in there, you should meeting a few people and being less judgemental

Eww, I am around Russian accents and they all sound bad to me. Hell, some people have told me I have a Russian accent (I don't think I do).

I don't really like British accent either. Heck, I don't like accents at all. I like pure, American English, and I don't hear it much living in NYC.

I want to make statements like this sound like talk of a 'pure race'. Such prejudices can easily be overcome if we are aware of them.

Russian can be very hot, but so can British... I'm torn

(I clicked Russian)

Would it be okay if I just said I like English that has no accent? If yes, what would you call that?
